The project entails construction of five potable water mega reservoirs sites and interconnecting network of large diameter water pipelines. Each reservoirs site will ultimately comprise up to nine reservoirs, each of which will be the largest of their type in the world.
Mega reservoirs and pumping stations will be constructed at five strategic locations along the Qatar National Utility Corridor. First phase of the project, which is currently under implementation, will deliver storage capacity of about 2,300 million gallons of water in 24 huge concrete reservoirs and some 480km of buried ductile iron pipelines with diameter up to 1.6m.
The project comprises the following principle new elements which will integrate with the existing supply, transmission and storage system:
Total storage volume:
Storage per each PRPS:
DI pipelines to be constructed in the first phase:
