UK Biwater to build another wastewater treatment plant in Morocco
The British company Biwater was chosen by the Moroccan authorities to design and build a new wastewater treatment facility for Moulay Bousselham, a fishing village and tourist destination located on the north coast of Morocco’s vast coastline.
The new wastewater treatment facility will provide pretreatment, biological treatment and advanced tertiary treatment, including closed low pressure ultraviolet disinfection.
Yassine Laib, Country Manager of Biwater for Morocco, declared: “The objective of this project is to protect the lagoon and the beach of Moulay Bousselham from wastewater discharges and to recharge the water table. The project will use wastewater treatment processes to meet the need to improve sanitation conditions in this region.
This project is part of Morocco’s investment in sanitation solutions, which is a key priority as the country strives to meet the demands of developing industry, commerce, agriculture and tourism. .
Moulay Bousselham is located on the Atlantic Ocean near the peaceful Merje Zerga lagoon reserve. The protected lagoon is one of the country’s most important bird habitats, attracting bird watchers from all over the world. Moulay Bousselham is also known for its agriculture, and is renowned for its production of strawberries which are exported all over the world.
Biwater is already engaged in the process of building a new wastewater treatment plant in the coastal town of Tarfaya in southern Morocco
