The world’s largest underground reserve of desalinated water has been completed in Abu Dhabi.
The Liwa Strategic Water Reserve, overseen by Abu Dhabi Water and Electricity Authority, holds a total of 5.6 billion gallons (app 21.2 billion litres) of water. Sitting 80 metres below the Liwa desert, the reserve will help to provide high quality water to UAE residents in a water-scarce region.
A recovery network of 315 recovery wells will ensure a continuous water supply for Abu Dhabi city and Al Dhafra region of the emirate.
