Eng. Ahmed bin Mohammed al-Rowas, Director-General of Directorate General of Water in the Governorate of Dhofaradded that the Directorate General is pressing ahead with its programme to restore water supply service in other wilayats in the aftermath of the recent tropical condition that prevailed in the Governorate of Dhofar.
In Sadah, electrical power has been restored to the desalination plant, with arrangements to re-operate feeding wells, provide a spare power generator and get the desalination working tomorrow, said Eng. Al Rowas.
He explained that the desalination plant in Halouf and Mashailah area and the desalination plants in Dhahboon, the Wilayat of Thumrait, have also been restored and functional, and so is the desalination plant in Tousnat, Wilayat of Al Mazyounah.
He pointed out that the water supply line from Rakhyut to Shahab As-aib will be repaired after the wadi’s water level subsides, with arrangements in place to provide water tanks to meet the needs of the area. All water wells have been restored in the wilaya (Rakhyut).
