120 million gallon water reservoir opens in Dubai

A new water reservoir has been completed at Al Lusaily.

The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) completed the water reservoir at Al Lusaily, which will increase the emirate’s total water reserves to 790 million gallons.

“The project includes building two reservoirs with a storage capacity of 120 million gallons of desalinated water. This will strengthen the water network and increase water storage capacity in different parts of Dubai,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and chief executive of DEWA.

“The first reservoir is expected to be completed in December 2014, at a capacity of 60 million gallons, and the second in January 2015 at the same capacity.

“The completion of this project will increase the total storage capacity of DEWA to 790 million gallons compared to the current capacity of 670 million gallons.”
