Minister of Water and Irrigation Mohammad Najjar said that the memorandum will serve the Kingdom’s water loss reduction strategy and help transfer know how and modern technology to water companies across the country.

The minister warned that potable water sources are shrinking year by year, adding that the water loss reduction strategy aims to cut losses by 25 percent by 2040.

According to the memorandum, field surveys of 20km-long water lines will be conducted; the entire cost will be borne by the American company.

Following that, the Water Authority and Miyahuna will evaluate the technology used, its results, and its feasibility, for use on a larger scale.
