Desalination plants make an important contribution to water supplies where natural water resources are inadequate. Sea water desalination in Oman started to supply potable water to Muscat and the coastal area in the early 1970s. In 2002, the total installed gross desalination capacity (design capacity) was 322,579 m3/day or 118 million m3/year. The total production is around 109 million m3/year (2006), whereas it was 34 million m3 in 1995. The desalination plants provided 80 percent of the potable water supply in the year 2010. In 2000, the total produced wastewater was 90 million m3. In 2006, 37 million m3 were treated and reused. The use of treated effluent is limited to landscape irrigation using sprinkler, drip and bubbler systems. The Muscat Municipality has major plans to extend its sewage collection and treatment system. At present the total water treatment in the municipality is about 25,000 m3/day but in the near future 70,000 m3/day should be generated. Treatment plants exist in each region. The recent water treatment station built in Salalah city (south of Oman) will produce about 40,000 m3/day. The effluent undergoes an effective tertiary treatment, one of the best in the world according to world standards in this field.
