Organized by Advanced Conferences & Meetings (ACM), the Future Drainage & Stormwater Networks Abu Dhabi is held under the patronage of Abu Dhabi City Municipality and Wet Infrastructure Summit is supported by the UAE Ministry of Infrastructure and the Egyptian Ministry of Water Resources and Irrigation.

 “The events today provide the perfect platform for industry professionals to exchange knowledge and experiences around topics of interest that are shared within the water management industry”, said Mohamed Al Shateri, president of the infra-structure studies and standards department at Abu Dhabi Municipality.

“Today we discussed in depth the studies around water collection lakes and the drilling of wells that address the groundwater levels in the UAE.

Those studies currently entered the trial phase after they were conducted recently by Abu Dhabi municipality in collaboration with the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi, as well as a number of universities and private sector companies,” he added.

One of the projects discussed at Future Drainage & Stormwater Networks Abu Dhabi was the study around Al Nahdah Pond in Abu Dhabi, situated between Al-Shamkha South and at the Northern East side of Al-Wathba and Al-Nahda Farmlands.

The pond was the topic of an extensive study conducted by Abu Dhabi Municipality consultants covering the hydrogeological, hydrologic and environmental sustainability of the pond, as well as the potential for further development as a recreational facility for investment purposes.

The Future Drainage & Stormwater Networks Abu Dhabi and the Wet Infrastructure Summit events also discussed in depth challenges facing the industry including urbanisation, population growth, climate change and the constraints of existing infrastructure.
