Construction works for a wastewater treatment plant, worth $95,290 (AED350,000), have been completed in the UAE's Umm Al Quwain emirate.
Situated in Al Shas, the facility has a production capacity of 15,000 gallons per day.
The Saud bin Rashid Al Mu’alla Foundation for Charitable and Humanitarian Works, and the Umm Al Quwain Public Works and Services Department, developed the project.
Rashid Al Hamar, director-general of Saud Bin Rashid Al Mu'alla Charitable and Humanitarian Est, said the plant has been developed to mitigate wastewater leakage problems in the area.
Meanwhile, Umm Al Quwain's public works department has started planting trees by using treated water generated by the facility.
According to WAM, Misbah Hamid, director-general of the Umm Al Quwain authority, said treated and pure water produced by the plant will be used for agricultural purposes, and to irrigate green areas.
