About Future Drainage & Stormwater Networks KSA

Earlier this year in April 2016, it was reported that rains and flooding have killed 18 people throughout Saudi Arabia and 915 had to be rescued from inside their vehicles. Floodwaters inundated roadways in Riyadh, Mecca and the mountainous south of the mostly desert kingdom.

In Nov 2015, it was reported that the Governorate of Makkah has confirmed that the flooding of streets and tunnels was the direct result of “a lack of adequate rainwater drainage systems at these sites.”

“Jeddah needs comprehensive water drainage in its streets and tunnels,” said Sultan Al-Dosari, spokesman of the governorate. The admission comes six years after the 2009 floods that resulted in the loss of over 100 lives and billions of riyals in damage to homes, cars and public infrastructure. There were subsequently promises made to revamp the entire storm water drainage system.

Late 2015, Minister of Municipal and Rural Affairs Abdullateef Al-Asheikh has approved contracts worth $267m (SR1.059bn) to implement 168 municipal projects in 14 governorates. The projects include stormwater, flood management, drainage projects. There are also multiple projects which have been ongoing including flood management projects in Riyadh, SR600-million rainwater drainage system in Jeddah and stormwater water prediction assessment for KSA for 100 years for Yanbu and Jubail.


The seminar serves as a platform to discuss the latest updates on the stormwater, flood management, drainage contracts worth $267m across 14 governorates in KSA, Riyadh Municipality’s flood management projects, and Jeddah Stormwater Drainage Progamme Updated Masterplan. The Future Drainage & Stormwater Networks KSA 2017 will also discuss the requirements by KSA’s leading project owners including Riyadh Metro, King Abdulaziz International Airport and Royal Commission of Jubail and Yanbu. 

Bringing together the responsible government authorities, engineering and design consultants, contractors, sub-contractors, materials and machinery suppliers, this seminar will provide an excellent opportunity to exchange knowledge and share best practices for designing, constructing, refurbishing, operating and maintaining effective stormwater, sewerage and drainage networks for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
