Development of a Water Resources Map for Qatar

A detailed data repository of water resources in Qatar is developed to capture data for the development of water management strategies. The
water map takes the form of a GIS that includes information on
(a)     quantities and qualities of all significant water sources, their location, their origin including wastewater, service water, industrial waste water, desalinated water and different types of groundwater, the availability of infrastructure to treat and/or transport such water, the authority in charge of allocating such water sources;
(b)     all significant water users (sinks), their location, the purpose of water use (e.g. irrigation, cooling, extraction) and their water quality requirements; and (c) the current and planned infrastructure available to upgrade the quality of water sources and the associated costs.
