(MENAFN - Arab News) Several saudis and expats have installed additional water tanks to ensure their water consumption during the month of ramadan and avoid any water shortage crisis which may hit jeddah districts during ramadan. the water consumption is higher during ramadan than in others months.

many districts in jeddah suffered in the last year a lack of water supply for several days especially during the holy month of fasting which will be longer for this year lasting more than 15 hours in the first few days.

however many residents who live in the southern districts of jeddah suffer from a permanent water shortage crisis especially in summer. they do not want to face this problem in ramadan as also they cannot afford to buy water tankers every week in the holy month.

those who can afford have installed additional water tankers to face any water shortage crisis during the holy month.

hani al-maimon a yemeni resident in the kilo 3 area of makkah road told arab news: 'my family has not received water for one week. i am poor and cannot afford to buy water tankers for sr100 from the water company while the long queues mean it will take a long time for the water to be delivered."

hassan al-haj who lives in al-nuzlah district complained that several residents in the area are suffering from a water shortage emphasizing that this is the second time this problem occurred during this month. he will try to manage this crisis before the month of ramadan.

water tankers that are usually delivered within the hour are now taking more than 24 hours to reach residents with many saying they have resorted to visiting the supply center in tahlia after losing hope of getting anywhere through call centers.

there is the choice of a 19-ton 11-ton or 7-ton water tanker size but jeddah residents usually prefer having a 19-ton capacity.

'no one knows when the water supply will stop. our building guard informs us that the municipality did not deliver supplies and that he needs to fetch water from the distribution center; such unexpected additional costs upset our budgets" said hamed saeed a sudanese resident told arab news.

in 2013 many jeddah residents had flocked to water distribution centers on the first day of ramadan to stand in long queues to get water. huge crowds of people were seen at al-faisaliyah water distribution center waiting patiently. the demand for water has increased following a malfunction at one of the water treatment plants in the industrial area.
