The existing Lussaily Reservoir lies 40km south of the city centre of Dubai.  DEWA plans to build a larger Lussaily Reservoir adjacent to the plot.

The team will also assist in contract specification, construction supervision, water quality testing, commissioning of the SCADA system, operator training and post-completion monitoring.
