Haya Water's World Class Water Reuse Project has more than 37,000 customers till date and by the year 2018 aims to bring enormous environmental benefits to the Muscat Governorate area by increasing this number to over 140,000.
The number of plants today is 12 plants which receive more than 85,000 cubic meters per day. By 2018, there are expected to be new 5 Plants which will receive more than 220,000 cubic metres per day.
CEO stressed that Haya Water will implement four projects in Wilayat Al Amerat. Three of these projects are related to establishing wastewater networks and distributing Treated Effluent Networks for (Western, Northern & Eastern areas). The forth project will be for building Sewage Treatment Plant and other related Plants. The capacity of the plant will be 18000 cubic meters per day. One of these wastewater projects was awarded in October 2012. The other three projects will be awarded during the first quarter of 2013.
The cost of these projects is about OR100m. All the four projects will be completed by 2016 and will cater to over 9000 properties of Wilayat Al Amerat. The length of the wastewater and treated effluent networks will be about 828 km. The Water Reuse Networks aim at gradually reducing, and finally eliminating, the current complex system of transporting wastewater from a property's septic tanks via tankers, thereby benefitting the population, and simplifying the collection of revenues from the various properties.
Following the CEO's speech, Said Al Asmi, General Manager of Projects presented further details with regard to the Al Amerat Project.
1. The western area project: comprises of a connected network of waterworks, sewer pipelines, Treated Effluent Pipelines covering an expanse of 230 kms. This project will cater to over 2900 properties.
2. The northern area: comprises of a connected network of waterworks, sewer pipelines, Treated Effluent Pipelines covering an expanse of 368 kms, in addition to Fibre Optic Cable Ducts. This project will cater to over 1460 properties.
3. The Eastern area: comprises of a connected network of waterworks, sewer pipelines, Treated Effluent Pipelines covering an expanse of 230 kms, in addition to Fibre Optic Cable Ducts. This project will cater to over 3750 properties.
4. Sewage Treatment Plant and other related Plants: Design, Build, Operation and Maintenance of Al Amerat Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) and related Works, including a Tanker Facility, Sewage Pumping Stations, Rising Mains, Treated Effluent Storage Reservoir, and Treated Effluent Pumping Station.
STP with a capacity of 18000 cubic meters with MBR technology making it one of the most developed and efficient effluent treatment hub in the region.

The population has been projected to reach 110,000 by 2025.
Al Amerat Water Reuse Project will be implemented in stages, as demand for sewerage services increases with population growth and development. The initial (Phase 1) implementation will include gravity Sewer Networks, Sewage Pumping Stations and Sewage Treatment Plant, and Treated Effluent distribution networks. It is estimated that this will include in excess of 80% of the population. Future implementation (after Phase 1) will include extensions to the Sewer and Treated Effluent networks, additional Pumping Stations and expansion of Treatment Plant and Pumping Station capacities.
