News MEDAWARE: A water management project in Morocco - "Hydraulic challenges and European partnership"

MEDAWARE, one of the five projects benefiting Morocco under the EU’s Regional Programme MEDA WATER for local water management, is the latest Feature Story on the EuroMed Info Centre’s website. The reportage “Morocco: Hydraulic challenges and European partnership” is written by local journalist Nadia ben Sellam and the photos, also available on-line, are by Morino Mustafa.

7000 hectares of cultivated fields surrounding Moroccan towns are irrigated with untreated waste water and out of 72 waste water treatment stations in the country, only half are actually operational. This situation was disclosed thanks to MEDAWARE, one of the five projects benefiting Morocco under the European regional programme MEDA WATER for local water management. On the other hand, at the experimental station in Zmamra, more than one experiment shows that Morocco is conscious of the challenges for the future.
