Titre : Introducing Small Scale Activated Sludge Filtration System of Wastewater Treatment in the Rural Areas of Bethlehem and Hebron Governorates in the West-Bank

Région / Pays : Palestine

Durée : Starting Date : March 2007 / Ending Date : September 2010

Descriptif
This project, funded by the Mennonite Central Committee, aims at enabling 180 households (1800 people) in 18 villages to utilize improved wastewater treatment in Bethlehem and Hebron Governorates through using treated wastewater irrigation as a substitute for high quality drinking water irrigation The specific objective of this project is to test the efficiency of a locally developed small scale wastewater treatment technology on household level assessing their sustainability for urban environment and agricultural production. A special lab is established for testing water quality and hygiene with suitable equipment to test the water quality of treated wastewater. Additionally, the 180 households are installed and provided with suitable irrigation networks connected to treated wastewater as well as seeds and seedlings. Accordingly, 115 dunums are planted with fruit trees and other crops. It is worth noting that, this project is expected to improve the food security, health and income of 180 households as a result of developing their gardens from additional irrigation sources.
