Flood Study for Mekaines RPS & Associated Pipelines

Project Description

The project primarily comprised the construction of a 12 MIG potable water reservoir, pump house, control building, 18-point tanker-filling station, emergency tanker-filling station, and other facilities (lagoon, chlorination building, and guardhouse), along with landscaping and installations of all internal piping
ECG conducted Flood Control Study to assess the flood impact on Mekaines RPS site, and provide mitigation plan to eliminate the potential risks of flood accumulation within the project site. The proposed Flood Mitigation System for the studied area is an infiltration Swale System, to collect and infiltrate the surface runoff into the soil and prevent flooding towards the project site. The system caters for approximately 73.0 ha of rural catchments submitted to Kahramaa.
The catchment hydrograph, generated from HEC-HMS software model, is used to develop a two-dimensional model in order to define the flood plain limits in the flow scenarios.
