MPW prepared for rainy season; Early-detection alarm systems to monitor water levels

Sunday, November 12, 2017

All underpasses across the country will be provided with early-detection alarm systems to monitor water levels in them and avoid flooding, like what happened last year.

The early-detection systems would send warning notices to a control room if water levels reach 30 cm in any underpass. The same notice is sent to MoI so that warning messages can be sent to all road users to avoid flooded tunnels.

The head of the Ministry of Public Works (MPW) supreme committee to follow up preparations for the rainy season said the committee discussed preparations that had started in August as well as ways to handle any emergencies. Preparations were being done in collaboration with various bodies such as MoI, the National Guard, the Civil Defense and the Cabinet’s committee for following up security-related decisions.

The preparations include cleaning all drainage systems, manholes and pipelines draining excess water into the sea.
