Mamdouh Raslan, chairperson of the HCWW
, told Daily News Egypt that the committee formed by the company to evaluate the bids technically and financially, will announce the winning company in September.
The sources stressed that the government still subsidises water supply so far, and the financial deficit of the HCWW
is increasing due to the high cost of the service as a whole, while in return the tariff of water is low.
Chairperson, Mamdouh Raslan, said earlier that saltwater desalination is one of the solutions to meet the increasing demand for drinking water in Egypt, especially with the steady increase of the population and the fixed share of the Nile water.
The sources at the Ministry of Electricity revealed that they had addressed the officials of the HCWW
by paying part of the debts and committing to pay the monthly consumption bill.
Mamdouh Raslan, chairperson of the Holding Company for Water & Wastewater (HCWW
), told Daily News Egypt that the new water tariff will reduce debts, construct new projects, and implement renovation plans.
