Public Works Ministry is working with UK-based Atkins to create plan

Kuwait’s Public Works Ministry is finalising the details of a new sewerage masterplan for the Kuwait metropolitan area.

The ministry is working with UK-based Atkins to create a new sewerage masterplan to cope with the increasing demand from the country’s rapidly growing population, Khaled al-Khazi, assistant undersecretary of sanitary engineering sector, Public Works Ministry, told MEED’s Kuwait Energy and Infrastructure Projects 2012 conference on 5 November.

The sewerage flow is expected to reach more than 2 million cubic metres by 2045, a significant increase from the 600,000 cubic metres that is currently being treated.

“The capital investment in sewerage schemes over the next 35 years will be about KD1bn ($3.6bn),” said Al-Khazi.
