Ahmed bin Nasser Al Abri, Acting General Manager for Plants and Transmissions Project at OWWSC stated: “The total cost of the project is OMR 41 million. It will provide 1.760 million gallons of water per day to the wilayat. The new distribution networks were operated successively. The company has completed all works whether regarding the readiness of the pumping stations or relating to the completion of the main line of the pipeline supply project.”

In addition, it contains 23 sites for installing pressure equalization devices to ensure the stability of the operational pressure of the water distribution networks around the clock.
