News EU provides €18 million to build new Waste Water Treatment Plant in the West Bank

The EU and the Palestinian Water Authority signed in Ramallah last week an €18 million agreement to construct a wastewater treatment plant and install an irrigation scheme in Tubas Governorate in the West Bank.

 This large-scale project will serve around 34,000 people living in Tubas, Tayasir, and Aqqaba. It will also provide treated water for agricultural use for farmers in the Governorate that relies significantly on agriculture. The project includes the construction of a wastewater treatment plant with a capacity of 4,300m³ per day and a wastewater collection network covering 53km (with 13km of house connections). It also includes the installation of an irrigation infrastructure with a pumping station, two steel reservoirs of 1,000 cubic meters, and 4.3km of distribution pipes.
