A total of 43,000 people will benefit from this project, which is part of the Algerian government’s policy to provide better sanitation services to its population and to mitigate the effects of water stress.

Other than protecting the environment from wastewater, the reuse of treated wastewater in Timimoun will also reduce the dependence of small farmers on depleting groundwater resources.
