Saudis to Build Biggest Water Storage Project in Riyadh

National Water Co., the biggest water supplier in oil-rich Saudi Arabia, plans to build a 1.8 billion-riyal ($480 million) storage facility in its desert capital Riyadh.

The 4.6 million-cubic-meter storage facility is part of the first phase of a project to “achieve a sustainable and secure water supply and meet the challenges of providing water-sector services” in the kingdom’s largest city, the state-owned company said today in an e-mail.
