An overview of the Azemmour wastewater treatment plant project
With a budget of approximately US$ 39M, the Azemmour wastewater treatment plant project covers an area of 5 hectares and it will be implemented within a span of 24 months.
Upon completion, expectedly towards the end of 2023, the facility will treat approximately 7,500 cubic meters of wastewater daily, using the activated sludge treatment technique before its release into the natural environment or its reuse for the irrigation of green spaces in the city of Azemmour, the northeast region of El Jadida, and the urban center of Mazagan.
Similarly, the sludge will be treated before its transport to the controlled public landfill, in addition to the treatment of odors owing to the latest deodorization technologies used in this field.
A part of the National Liquid Sanitation and Wastewater Treatment Program (PNA)
Noteworthy, the Azemmour wastewater treatment plant project is part of the National Liquid Sanitation and Wastewater Treatment Program (PNA) that was launched back in 2005.
The program aims to rehabilitate and extend Morocco’s sewage network, connect and strengthen the stormwater network and build treatment plants_with primary, secondary and tertiary treatment capacity_in a total of 330 cities and urban centers with more than 10 million inhabitants by 2030.
