Sewage System Development Project (II) in the four cities around Marrakech (Morocco)

Maroc

Titre : Sewage System Development Project (II) in the four cities around Marrakech (Morocco)

Pays : Maroc

Date : 2007

Présentation
Based on the Nationwide Master Plan for Sewage Networks drawn up by the government of Morocco, the Medium-term Investment Plan for Developing Sewage Systems (2003 – 2017) published by the Office National de l’ Eau Potable (ONEP) calls for the construction of sewage systems for all the managed districts where it supplies potable water over a fifteen-year period. In the four cities around Marrakech, which are among the areas targeted for top-priority projects, the construction of sewage systems will contribute to a higher standard of living.
The development of sewage systems in Morocco’s small and mid-sized cities is lagging well behind requirements, as a result of rapid urbanization, as well as financial constraints on investment capital, and the costs of maintenance. Therefore, untreated sewage is sometimes discharged into rivers, degrading water quality and creating other environmental issues. In addition, Morocco does not enjoy abundant water resources, and some farmers use this polluted water for agriculture. The quick resolution of the problem of sewage facilities in small and mid-sized cities is essential for the improvement of the country’s residential and natural environment, and from a public-health standpoint.
The proceeds of the loan will be used for procurement of the resources, machinery, and materials needed for the construction of sewage treatment facilities and pumping stations, as well as the rehabilitation, expansion, and construction of wastewater facilities of the existing sewage system, and for consulting services.
