He added," The length of the main and subsidiary wastewater networks implemented in parallel with this project stands at 575 km. The number of units connected to the wastewater network is about 9570 governmental, residential and commercial units, as well as about 4830 connections for future urban expansion and the construction of a 40 km treated water network, equipped with a number of distribution points for treated water.
