Options on the Table: Rebuilding Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh Discussed

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 8: In a report provided to the joint committee to follow up on the current situation in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, the Ministry of Public Works recommended permanent and temporary solutions to the infrastructural problems in that area, indicating that the permanent solution is to renewal the entire infrastructure of the area for which it will prepare Tender No. H/160, reports Al- Seyassah daily. The report explained that the temporary solution involves installing units to treat wastewater, especially those resulting from the high population density in the area until the problem is radically resolved.

Necessary approvals are being obtained to establish units for purifying and treating wastewater for Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh at a rate of 24 units in 12 locations, in coordination with the Environment Public Authority to allocate the necessary budget. Also, it had been nearly 30 years since the construction of the sewage network in the area. The design of the network was based on a private residential area.

With time, the area changed completely due to building violations, and it eventually turned into an unregulated investment area with huge numbers many times higher than the capacity of the existing sewage system. The ministry affirmed its keenness to develop the best solutions and reduce pollutants in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, and the impact on the neighboring areas such as Ishbiliya, Rehab, Rabiya, Muhammad bin Al-Qasim Street, and Al-Nasr Sports Club. The ministry explained that it had received 704 complaints since the start of the committee’s meeting. It replaced 22 manhole covers and dealt with 61 asphalt potholes. It had also replaced a main sewer line on Street 165 and a main rainwater and emergency sewer line on Street 170.

It had installed a chemical and biological treatment tank on the rain and emergency network that serves Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh and its neighboring areas of Ghazali C6 drain and CS drain to reduce pollutants reaching the sea. It installed 23 new carbon baskets on the drainage networks in various places of Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh and the neighboring affected areas. Also, the total number of carbon baskets that were installed reached 279 to reduce the emission of toxic and unpleasant gasses and maintain the safety of the residents of the areas.
