Oman Drainage & Wastewater Management 2017

The Oman Drainage & Wastewater Management seminar would be the largest gathering of drainage, wastewater and flood control specialists from all over the Sultanate. The day’s programme will deliver high level presentations, new technologies and solutions for the advancement of storm water and wastewater management.

Ninety percent of Sultanate’s land is in dry and semi-dry areas. Water scarcity, increase in population and improvement of the living standards has put strain on water resources and their use in the country. Hence, finding new unconventional water resources such as treated wastewater (TWW) has become highly important in the country. The importance of wastewater as a potential source of water is apparent in countries that suffer from shortage of water especially to those in the arid zone such as the Sultanate of Oman.

The non-conventional resources in Oman are from desalination of seawater, storage dams and recharge dams, and treated wastewater. Effective management of these resources plays an important role in providing an efficient, effective and sustainable form of overcoming challenges such as scarcity of water, floods etc.

The main challenge that exists in Oman is the lack of proper drainage systems, rain waters flooding in private and public properties leaving behind enormous amount of debris and dusts that would take weeks to clean and remove. Local authorities and key consultants have identified inadequate planning and a lack of proper maintenance of drainage networks as the main challenges leading to urban floods.

Oman Drainage & Wastewater Management seminar will bring together the key stake holders from Ministries, Contractors, Consultants, Technology/ Solution providers and more to discuss, strategize and implement an efficient solution for the wastewater and drainage networks in the Sultanate.
