Abu Dhabi Distribution Company Announces New Supply Of Recycled Water To Saadiyat Island
(15 January 2020)
Approximately 4.4 million gallons per day of recycled water supplied to Saadiyat Island as part of a larger recycled water network planned for the Emirate


Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) – a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Power Corporation (ADPower) – announced, today, that it has successfully begun the supply of recycled water to  Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi. Approximately, 4.4 million imperial gallons per day (MIGD) of recycled water is now supplied to the island’s community for landscaping, significantly reducing its reliance on desalinated water. ADDC has connected Saadiyat Island to the existing recycled water network from Yas Island.

Recognizing the potential of this untapped resource –as well as its sustainable impact on Abu Dhabi – ADDC has been developing the recycled water network’s extension. The project is the first phase of a program that aims to further enhance the utilisation of recycled water in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, reducing reliance on desalinated and ground water for landscaping and agriculture uses. The next phases of the program will expand to include irrigation to other parts of the Emirate, extending the use of recycled water beyond landscaping irrigation.

H.E. Saeed Mohamed Al-Suwaidi, Managing Director of ADDC, said: “Water is one of the world’s most precious resources, requiring careful management, maintenance and deployment. We must constantly seek sustainable and practical solutions for optimal utilisation. Our new recycled water project is a significant milestone for Abu Dhabi’s sustainability objectives, as it maximises the use of desalinated water, prevents the depletion of natural ground water and channels untapped recycled water for municipality irrigation. This is just one step in a broader initiative that will drive our Emirate’s sustainable growth and development for decades to come.”

Abu Dhabi’s water and electricity sector is a driving force for sustainability in the UAE as the water and electricity sector undergoes a comprehensive transformation, with its operating companies, such as ADDC, demonstrating significant progress and performance in regards to sustainable initiatives that shape the nation’s future.
