The specific objectives of this project are to: i) provide an environmentally safe disposal system for the treated wastewater which will not be reused in agriculture in the North of Tunis; and ii) increase the quantity and quality of treated wastewater made available to farmers to encourage its reuse in agriculture in the Borj Touil area.
