The total capacity of the Water strategic mega reservoirs project is 1500 MIG, which covers the storage requirements up to 2026. It adds 155% to the current water storage capacity of 900 MIG. It comes as an implementation of H.H. Amir’s vision to achieve Qatar water security. It marks the largest expansion of Qatar water storage capacity ever. The project promotes Qatar's water security by providing a secured and balanced water storage to ensure water supply to all sectors and meet the increasing needs resulted in the population growth and the comprehensive development the State witnesses.

 

The project is located in five strategic sites: Umm Birka, Umm Slal, Rawdat Rashed, Abu Nakhla, and Al Thumama. Each site covers roughly 1 km2. The project consists of 15 of the world’s largest concrete reservoirs. Each reservoir is 300m long, 150m wide, and 12m high, at a capacity of around 100 MIG to earn Guinness World Record for world largest drinking water storage tank and largest drinking water storage tanks network. KAHRAMAA has installed over 650 km of large diameter pipelines connect the desalination plants in the north and the south together with the 5 sites to ensure water flow in both directions with operational flexibility to meet any emergency. The total cost of the project is QR. 14.5 billions.

 

Sites have been selected based on a thorough study, Rawdat Rashed sites is located at the highest point of project route to allow gravity flow water distribution at emergency with no electric power at emergency. The five sites are designed to allow future expansion and the construction of additional reservoirs with no need to install more pipelines.

 

To avoid water stagnation, the interior design of the reservoir allows water movement from entry to exit without electric power. Moreover, water quality is monitored around the clock using state of the art technologies
