The state-of-the-art treatment plant is located in the Umm Slal Ali area which lies to the north of Doha. The catchment extends to Umm Slal area, 25 km north of Doha and includes Al Kheesa, Al Khariatiyat, Al Duhail and the Pearl and Lusail developments to the east.
The treatment plant uses the latest up-to-date technologies in treating the raw sewage it receives from Doha North main pumping station (PS70). The facility produces high quality treated effluent for non-potable use, such as irrigation for public parks and landscaped areas. The facility is also the first to have the comprehensive odour control system to minimise the impact on the surrounding environment.
Phase one of the works is designed for a peak capacity to treat wastewater of up to 244,000 cubic metres per day and will serve a projected population of over 900,000 (in the year 2020).
The facility is equipped with a Thermal Drying Plant that processes the wastewater sludge, generated during the treatment process, to pellets for safe disposal, all in accordance with international standards.
As Part of the Project, Ashghal took the initiative, the first of its kind in Qatar, to grow up to 95.000 trees over approximately 12 square kilometers, within the buffer zone surrounding the plant.
