Development of a Watercourse

Study, detailed design, construction supervision

Located in Duhok City, this project had to overcome hilly and mountainous terrain, crossing many wadis and the Duhok and Hishkaro rivers. These two rivers are at the lowest-lying points in the city, so runoff and wastewater from the few existing city sewers are discharged directly into them. 

The project proposed to build channels with U-shaped cross-sections using trapezoidal reinforced concrete. The cross-section width varied depending on each area’s population density and its existing facilities. The project included concrete channels, services roads, a main sewage collector, and civil structures such as ramps, stairs, pedestrian bridges, recreation areas, and manholes.
