دراسة الجدوى لمشروع محطة معالجة الصرف الصحي في برج حمود، والمنجزة من قبل مجلس الإنماء والإعمار لمصلحة وزارة الطاقة والمياه. DAOURA/BOURJ HAMMOUD WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT, FEASIBILITY STUDY, ESIA Scoping Report and Stakeholder Engagement Plan

The wastewater sector in Lebanon suffers from chronic under-investment, combined with a weak institutional and governance structure and an insufficient tariff framework. Wastewater treatment is almost non-existent in Lebanon with only 8% of wastewater generated in the country actually treated.

In addition, only 60% of the population is connected to a sewage collection network1. In particular, parts of the areas of northern Beirut, parts of Baabda, and the Metn district still have their wastewater systems under preparation, thus all the wastewater generated from these areas are haphazardly discharged into septic tanks and into the sea without any treatment.

In line with the Government of Lebanon’s (GoL) efforts to address the critical need for wastewater infrastructure, a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) is proposed in Daoura/Bourj Hammoud. The

development of this WWTP was divided into two construction phases. Phase 1 includes the pretreatment headworks plant, which is currently under implementation, and Phase 2 includes the construction of the remaining components of the WWTP, which are the primary and secondary treatment units and WWTP associated facilities (i.e. power supply, networks). This phase will also include the rehabilitation of existing supplementary components such as pumping stations and sewage networks. The WWTP is expected to provide a treatment capacity of around 325,000 m3 per day and to serve around 1.4 million inhabitants from Beirut, Metn and Baabda Districts.

The WWTP will be the largest in Lebanon and the development of this project will require the rehabilitation of the existing auxiliary components including pumping stations and coastal sewage network in the served area. The proposed project is a crucial component to reduce the negative effects of unsanitary disposal of wastewater along the coast of Lebanon. Proper operation of the WWTP will eventually reduce marine pollution, protect groundwater aquifers, improve the health conditions of the population directly and indirectly affected by wastewater pollution, and protect the environment and existing diverse ecosystems.
