He added that the project includes the construction of water distribution networks in 4 planned areas: 74, 111, 112, and Al Zahia. The project will cover the construction of main and sub-water distribution lines of various sizes totaling 120 kilometres in length. Additionally, it involves installing fire hydrants used in emergency situations by the civil defense, valves to control the flow rates in the network, and valves to control pressure levels in the network.
