Dubai Municipality’s Ghaith Dubai team has managed to clear rainwater catchments and keep traffic flowing in the streets of Dubai in record time, said Eng. Talib Julfar, CEO of Infrastructure Services Sector and Team Leader Ghaith Dubai.
He stressed that the Emirate has not witnessed rainwater accumulation in its main streets due to the availability of appropriate infrastructure and services provided by specialised teams, and because the teams had observed the rainwater accumulation and reported it on time using the Dubai 24/7 App.
Julfar pointed out that Dubai Municipality’s efforts to deal with rainwater throughout the Emirate will continue according to a 24-hour continuous work programme, stressing that, based on an analysis of meteorological reports and weather forecasting, measures have been taken to deal with emergency communications expected due to rainfall.
He said the team followed the meteorological maps of the areas expected to form cumulus clouds accompanied by rain. “The team followed the Najm Suhail App of the Municipality, as its stations distributed in different areas of the Emirate recorded a large quantity of rainfall. The Palm Jumeirah station recorded 25.6 mm of rain, which was the highest rainfall in the Emirate.
