"Red Tide" Affects Oman Water Desal Operations


The operations at Barka desalination plant continues to be affected by the "Red Tide" situation near Barka, said the Public Authority for Electricity and Water (PAEW). The Central Emergency Committee urged the residents of Seeb and Dhakilyah to rationalise their water consumption until the desalination plant resumes normal operations. The authorities sought to allay fears, saying that fishing will not be affected off the coast of Barka because of the red tide.
