Reuse of groundwater for watering at a cultural centre for the Riyadh Metro construction work

Reuse of groundwater for watering at a cultural centre for the Riyadh Metro construction work

Detected needs:

Part of the line 5 in the Riyadh Metro construction project (Saudi Arabia) had a significant volume of groundwater (up to 1.000 m per hour), which required control, treatment and discharge.

Adopted solutions:

To prevent any possible environmental risk and arrive at a sustainable solution, the consortium and operator of the King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture reached an agreement to reuse the groundwater as much as possible after treatment instead of discharging the water into the public network.

The water was reused to irrigate most of the parks, squares, museums and historical buildings at this cultural centre.

Resultados:

Since April 2016, 65% of these effluents have been used for watering plants at the King Abdulaziz Cultural Centre.
