The wastewater sector in Egypt suffers from historic underinvestment and weak governance which has resulted in hugely underdeveloped wastewater infrastructure, high leakage, and inefficient pumping costs and degraded water quality. The level of sanitary network connections remains very low in rural areas compared with urban areas which have up to 90 per cent wastewater connection coverage.
The Fayoum Wastewater Expansion Program will provide first time sanitation to around 940,000 inhabitants in the Fayoum governorate through (i) the construction of 8 new wastewater treatment plants (“WWTPs”); (ii) expansion of 9 and rehabilitation of 10 existing WWTPs; (iii) expansion of the sewerage network of about 3,433 km of pipes together with the installation of 139 pumping stations; and (iv) evacuation trucks to serve rural areas (the “Project”).
The new wastewater treatment facilities are expected to lead to significant reduced pollution levels in Fayoum’s agricultural drains, which in turn are expected to lead to better quality and quantity of food (currently water used for agriculture and aquaculture use is heavily contaminated), higher demand for local produce, increased arable land and creation of employment opportunities in the agriculture sector.
