The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal‘ announced the completion of all the main upgrade works for the 17.2-kilometer-trunk sewer that serves 8 areas to the North of Doha.

The new trunk sewer aims to facilitate discharge of sewage flows from several northern areas such as Rawdat Al Jahaniya, Al Themaid, Rawdat Egdaim, North Al Nassriya, Bani Hajer, Al Kharaitiyat, Izghawa, and the area surrounding Al Rayyan Stadium. This is in addition to serving Al Rayyan Stadium, which is one of the stadiums that will host World cup 2020. Eng. Abdulla Al Nuaimi, Project Engineer in the Roads Projects Department, said: “The completed works involved the construction of a deep trunk sewer extending from Al Rayyan Stadium to Al Shamal Road to collect and discharge foul flows to Pumping Station 70, located in Al-Ebb and Leabaib. The sewage will then be pumped into the treatment plant in Umm Slal Municipality.”

Eng. Al Nuaimi also added that “The foul sewer infrastructure upgrade serves several areas witnessing a significant urban growth as it collects the sewage of other existing projects in the area. It will also improve the quality of life as well as the health and environmental conditions in the area by providing well-developed sewer connections to replace the traditional septic tanks.” Eng. Al Nuaimi pointed out that the project comes as part of Ashghal’s commitment to solve sewerage-related issues in these areas by providing a strategic deep sewer line that transfers flows to the main treatment plant in the area.

It is worth noting that the sewer line starts at a depth of 7 meters, from Al Rayyan Stadium, until it reaches the tie-in point in Al-Kharaitiyat and Izghawa area on Al Shamal Road, where the line runs at a depth of approximately 30 meters.
