The Public Authority for Electricity and Water (Diam) has successfully completed the renovation and upgradation of the pumping station in the wilayat of Al Qabel in the Governorate of North Sharqiyah.
The project aimed to boost pumping through the installation of pumps larger than the ones the station operates with.
Eng Ibrahim bin Salem al Nizwani, director of the Operations Department in the governorate, said the team completed work in record time, in a period of less than 24 hours after it was previously announced that the work was expected to last for approximately 48 hours.
Eng Nizwani said that during the renovation and upgradation process, no water shortage was recorded by citizens and residents in the three wilayats of Al Qabel, Ibra and Mudhaibi.
He said that supply of water was halted during the renovation work but citizens and residents did not face any difficulties as they had stored enough water in big tanks.
Diam had taken all necessary preparations and educated the public to ensure that therewas no water shortage in the wilayats during the renovation and upgradation of the pumping station.
