PM orders focus on treatment plants and water supply
In this context, the Prime Minister issued instructions to focus on projects for the construction of treatment plants and water supply networks in all regions, stressing the need to prioritise them in the current year’s plan, especially areas that suffer from a shortage of water sources and distribution networks, and sanitation problems.
Aldabaiba stressed the importance of accelerating the pace of work on the two sewage network implementation projects for the cities of Ajdabiya and Sebha, which were approved during 2022, stressing adherence to high technical specifications, and working according to approved standard prices and work standards for executive bodies.
