Wadi Hanifa Restoration Project

Infrastructure restoration project for the Wadi Hanifah Zone 3


Infrastructure restoration project for the Wadi Hanifah Zone 3

Project Significance

With its basin and tributaries forming a unique, 120-km long ecological region, Wadi Hanifah stretches from the Tuwaiq Escarpment to the open desert southeast of Riyadh. The Wadi Hanifah Restoration sought to restore natural balance for rainwater, floods, and surface water flowing from different sources of the city of Riyadh. The objective of the project was to improve the valley and remove pollutants and their sources—and it required rearrangement of existing services.
