Gulf Consult in association with Montgomery Watson Harza (MWH) were appointed by the Ministry of Public Works, Sanitary Engineering Sector, to undertake the Study, Design and Construction Supervision for the Kuwait Sewage Improvements Phase VII in the Salwa, Fintas to Fahaheel and Sabahiya Areas.

The existing system comprised of 310 km of sewers, 950 manholes, four screw lift stations and three major pumping stations. The whole network was surveyed by CCTV and redesigned for projected flows for the year 2025.

All the existing lift stations were abandoned and two of the pumping stations replaced and a third upgraded. The sewerage network was completely replaced.

Key features of the project included the construction of sewers and pumping stations to depths of up to 12 m in areas of a high water table and the extensive use of microtunneling for approximately 12 km of new sewer construction.
