  • To commission and to employ suitable, qualified professional engineers to design and supervise the construction of all the necessary installations, dams, reservoirs, storage, pipelines, other waterworks, the necessary sewerage, effluent, disposal systems and other facilities, and water reclamation systems for the desired purification of the effluents; and
