The National Authority for Potable Water and Sewage has completed 50% of its planned sewage projects in governorates of Giza and Qaliubiya, unnamed sources from the authority told Al Mal.

The authority is expected to build the sewage projects after it has received parliament’s approval and a KWD 45 mn (approximately EGP 2.58 bn) loan from the Arab Fund last June.

The authority’s plan involves completing 39 drinking water and sewage projects within weeks in several governorates, including Gharbeya, Beni Suef, Kafr El Sheikh and Beheira, at a total investment cost of EGP 3.3 bn. The plan is expected to serve over 2 mn residents, according to an announcement made earlier by Mostafa Madbouly, Minister of Housing, Utilities, and Urban Communities.
