This $93 million project aims to expand As-Samra Wastewater Treatment Plant in partnership with a private sector operator, which will mobilize a portion of the construction costs. This arrangement will enhance operational sustainability to ensure that the treatment plant continues to function well beyond the life of the Compact. By end of the Compact the project will expand the plant’s treatment capacity by 97,800 cubic meters/day (an increase of more than one-third) and install upgrades to handle higher suspended solid loads. These improvements should meet the region’s wastewater treatment needs through 2025. The expansion works have commenced in October 2012 and are expected to be complete within three years.
