Underground aquifers contain 100 times the volume of fresh water found on the Earth's surface but they have been neglected under international law despite their environmental, social, economic and strategic importance. On Monday, that will change as the UN General Assembly receives the draft of a new international treaty to safeguard these enormous pools of underground water shared by more than one country. The draft Convention on Transboundary Aquifers applies to 96 percent of the planet's freshwater resources - those that are to be found in underground aquifers, most of which straddle national boundaries. Many shared aquifers are under environmental threats caused by climate change, growing population pressure, over-exploitation, and human induced water pollution.

They don't look like domes, they look more like craters.
The road spirals downwards, not up.
Looks like it to me anyway.
As a guess, i'd say it was either fresh water storage for the new 'island' developments UAE have built, or sewerage.
May even be underground oil storage.
Or could be doomsday bunkers for the rich that will be buying the multimillion $ apartments and private islands in the area.
Unless we get someone stop by who actually lives there, or has worked on these things (or knows someone who has), we're only guessing.
