News MOROCCO: In Fez, Radeef will reuse treated wastewater for watering with €27m

In the Moroccan city of Fez, 480 hectares of green spaces will be watered daily with treated wastewater. The effluent will be treated by the Régie Autonome de Distribution d’Eau et d’Électricité de Fès (RADEEF) as part of a new project. Thus, every day, 33,000 m3 of treated wastewater will be produced by RADEEF thanks to a “trimodal filtration” technique using sand and ultraviolet radiation. In addition to the 480 hectares of green spaces in the city of Fez, the project will benefit the Royal Golf Course (70 hectares) and the Oued de Fez (35 hectares).

It is a response to the water crisis in the city of Fez, affected by drought like most cities in the Cherifian kingdom. The Authority will set up three reservoirs, four pumping stations and an 80-kilometre pipeline to carry treated wastewater to the green spaces.
