Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) head of customer relations and communications Abdul Raof Ahmad said the plant's raw water treatment process has resumed operations and the treated water to its distribution reservoir
is back to normal today.
The Egyptian billionaire owns the companies Middle East for Oil Refinery, Middle East for Water Distribution Reservoirs
and Pipelines, and El Shark Gas.
The new Ghubra desalination plant is expected to contribute to raising the water levels in the main distribution reservoirs
, as well as improving water pressure and providing water to Muscat Governorate.
There are two 4-MG clear wells at the treatment plant, and two 6-MG distribution reservoirs
. The 400-mile distribution system consists of: 1) 57 percent cast or galvanized iron; 2) 22 percent asbestos cement; and 13 percent of either lead or copper main-to-meter service lines.
However, neither the characteristics of mixing in distribution reservoirs
nor the effects of reservoir design on mixing behavior have been investigated.
