Dubai’s Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has posted an increase of 30% in water connections over 2014.
Brought by several projects and progress in the national economy, 6, 950 new connections were established last year, arriving at a total 30,300 connections. This result proves that DEWA’s strategy to augment the efficiency and reliability of the water system to compensate the increasing water demand in all parts of Dubai and raise the volume of the Emirate’s water reserves is on the right track.
As for DEWA’s growth plans, they are focused to ensure the sustainable development of the emirate. These include the improvement in distribution networks, water transmission and the increase of water flow. Currently, DEWA can produce 470 million imperial gallons of desalinated water per day while the demand reaches its peak at 316 million imperial gallons per day.
Through the help of the best and latest technologies, DEWA can keep a surplus which counts as a reserve to produce water according to the highest international standards.
