Water is the most essential factor for hygiene and dignified life and according to Sphere charter, the average water use for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene in any household is at least 15 liters per person per day. Therefore, the #SyrianArabRedCrescent is keen to secure water for all, and implement projects that contribute to solving the problem of water outages.
The first stage
The preparation works of rehabilitating the northern pumping station in #Swaida began in 2018. It included installing a generator and control panels, in addition to providing horizontal pumps and all needed accessories.
Today, the volunteers continue their work by implementing two main pumping lines, which contribute to the delivery of clean water to 86,000 people in the city.
The first line (the Qanwat Road line) extends from Tishreen Square to the National Museum (1430 M, diameter 150 mm).
The second line (Al-Qalaa line) extends from the Mountain Road to Al-Qalaa water tank, (1350 M, diameter 200 mm).
The new pipelines help to increase the flow of water, and the works are carried out according to the following stages:
1- Starting the drilling operations.
2- Installing ductile iron pipelines.
3- Finishing backfilling procedures
In addition to setting up manhole walling and connections.
The volunteers will complete the installation of water pipeline stages with the support of the International Committee of the Red Cross and in cooperation with the Drinking Water and Sewerage Authority in Swaida
