Water Treatment, A Critical Role for Renewables II

En 2004 le Programme d’approvisionnement groupé en eau potable des populations rurales (PAGER) a reçu un prix des Nations Unies, le United Nations Public Service Awards, dans la catégorie amélioration des performances des services publics. Grâce à ce programme entamé en 1995, le taux d’accès à l’eau potable en milieu rural au Maroc a augmenté considérablement.

Then it makes a lot of sense and close the water re-use gap through an effective water treatment plan. Treating water for either drinking water or agricultural use is not a commodity but a necessity of which Morocco is all too conscious, thus the 100 plants now built by 2009, are they all operational ? Why is only 13% of the water treated ? 87% of the collected waters would be totally wasted ? It is unacceptable and unsustainable.

Rather, the water treated, or waiting to be treated should go here (Click to view my post on underground water storage facilities.)
