Treated liquid waste may be used on Abu Dhabi crops

Study into using liquid waste is part of an effort to co-ordinate various government departments and smooth the management and use of water.

ABU DHABI // Abu Dhabi's Permanent Committee for Water and Agriculture Resources this week agreed to conduct a study on using treated liquid waste to irrigate the country's crops and commission an inventory of all wells and farms in the emirate. The committee was established in December and is chaired by Mohammad al Bowardi, the secretary general of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council.

It is part of an effort to co-ordinate various government departments and smooth the management and use of water. The committee has commissioned the Environment Agency-Abu Dhabi to conduct a well and farm inventory and study the salinity of the ground water available for irrigation. Abu Dhabi's ground water resources are so over-tapped much of the water is too salty to use. The committee also discussed using native drought-tolerant plants in landscaping and establishing a water council to oversee all issues related to water management.
