Haya Wa­ter part of Tree Day cel­e­bra­tion

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Haya Wa­ter re­cently par­tic­i­pated in the cel­e­bra­tion of the Tree Day, which falls on Oc­to­ber 31 each year, or­gan­ised by Sul­tan Qa­boos Univer­sity.

Eng Hus­sain bin Has­san Ab­dulHus­sain, CEO of Haya Wa­ter, said, “Haya Wa­ter is keen to an­nu­ally par­tic­i­pate in such ex­hi­bi­tions. This par­tic­i­pa­tion com­plies with His Majesty Sul­tan Qa­boos bin Said's di­rec­tives to ded­i­cate this day to cel­e­brate the tree be­cause of its great sig­nif­i­cance to our lives and to en­cour­age the so­ci­ety to pre­serve trees.”

He added that Haya Wa­ter is one of the lead­ing com­pa­nies in the field of en­vi­ron­men­tal con­ser­va­tion through its util­i­sa­tion of waste­water by treat­ing and con­vers­ing it into treated waste­water used for ir­ri­ga­tion of trees and crops.

This treat­ment also con­trib­utes to the pro­tec­tion of ground­wa­ter from pol­lu­tion caused by waste­water which is trans­formed into suit­able wa­ter used for ir­ri­ga­tion and agri­cul­ture. In ad­di­tion, Haya Wa­ter takes ad­van­tage of the sludge re­sult­ing from sewage treat­ment by treat­ing it and con­vert­ing it into organic fer­tiliser used for fer­til­is­ing trees and veg­eta­bles.

Haya Wa­ter par­tic­i­pated this year through the al­lo­cated spe­cial cor­ner which educates visi­tors about the com­pany's ef­forts in the field of tree con­ser­va­tion. The stu­dents and visi­tors were in­tro­duced to the meth­ods of waste­water treat­ment, es­pe­cially the trans­for­ma­tion process of sludge into organic fer­tiliser which con­trib­utes ef­fec­tively to the growth of trees and plants.

Haya Wa­ter, as part of its prin­ci­ple to take care of the en­vi­ron­ment and so­ci­ety, has es­tab­lished Al Ansab Wet­lands to utilise the treated waste­water. The com­pany man­ages and de­vel­ops these wet­lands to en­sure creat­ing a suit­able en­vi­ron­ment and nat­u­ral habi­tats that at­tract nearly 292 species of lo­cal and mi­grated birds.
