In line with its goal of setting a global benchmark in sustainable urban development, Msheireb Properties has announced a site-wide non-potable water system within Msheireb Downtown Doha.

 
The system will produce non-potable, that can be used for much other purpose.

The Msheireb Downtown Doha non-potable water system will further treat municipality supplied Treated Sewage Effluent (TSE) so it is pure enough to be used in the District Cooling System, which utilizes energy efficient evaporative chillers, and for irrigation of the site’s vegetation and for the flushing of all toilets. This will save over 6,500,000litres of potable water per day.

We conducted thorough research into various alternative solutions in terms of setting the highest benchmark for water conservation and treatment,” said Mohammed Al Marri, Director-Projects, Msheireb Properties. “I am confident that we have in place the best possible solution which will support the project’s sustainability agenda and meet the needs of residents.”

A drip irrigation system and a planting palette that focuses on native and adapted species will ensure an efficient irrigation regime for the project’s landscape. The irrigation system will reduce evaporative losses and the landscaping will require less water overall.

The system will earn water efficiency credits under the US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Rating System. The LEED Rating System recognizes the use of non-potable water so achieving higher potable water savings will earn more points. The project will also receive further LEED Points for water efficient fixtures which will reduce potable water consumption up to 30 per cent.

The Qatar National Development Strategy 2011-2016 identifies water as being one of Qatar’s most pressing environmental concerns.To promote water conservation, Msheireb Properties willalso select fixtures across the project for their efficiency. Potable water supply and consumption will be carefully monitored for leaks in the system or over-consumptions.
