East Hawija Water Transmission Line
Owner: Ministry of Construction, Housing, Municipalities, and Public Works / General Directorate of Water / Kirkuk Water Directorate
The East Hawija Water Project involves the construction of a crucial 400mm ductile water transmission line, aimed at enhancing the region’s water supply infrastructure. The project’s scope encompasses a route originating at the East Hawija station, passing through multiple villages, and concluding upon reaching the Zaidan village.
Key Project Elements:
• 400mm Ductile Water Pipe Installation: A high-quality 400mm ductile water pipe will be installed, sourced from reputable suppliers. This pipeline will serve as the primary conduit for efficient water transmission, addressing the water requirements of designated areas.
• Accessories and Components: The project incorporates essential accessories, including couplings and connectors, to ensure seamless connections within the pipeline network. These components contribute to overall pipeline reliability and functionality.
• Iron Ferry Bridges: Iron ferry bridges will be erected at critical intersections to facilitate uninterrupted water flow across rivers and water bodies. These bridges play a crucial role in maintaining the pipeline’s structural integrity while allowing water passage beneath.
• Concrete Culverts: Four concrete culverts will be constructed at key branching points along the pipeline route to efficiently manage water flow, particularly where the pipeline diverges or encounters varying terrains.
• Auxiliary Accessories (Ventilation): The project involves the installation of auxiliary accessories, such as ventilation systems, to prevent moisture buildup and ensure proper ventilation within the pipeline structure, enhancing its longevity.
Challenges and Solutions:
Constructing a 400mm ductile water pipe for the East Hawija water project presents several challenges, including diverse terrain navigation, environmental considerations, land authorization, technical management, and weather adaptation. To address these challenges, effective planning, community engagement, regulatory cooperation, engineering expertise, weather preparedness, and efficient project management are essential. These measures ensure the timely and dependable completion of the water pipe, bolstering the region’s water supply infrastructure.
The project is overseen by the Ministry of Construction, Housing, Municipalities, and Public Works in coordination with the General Directorate of Water and the Kirkuk Water Directorate. It is projected to be completed by the 23rd of May 2023. By integrating robust infrastructure, essential accessories, and effective construction practices, the East Hawija Water Project seeks to establish a reliable and sustainable water distribution network, benefiting the communities along the transmission line’s route.
Completion Date: 23rd May 2023
