MEDISS – Mediterranean Integrated System for Water Supply project
Client: PWEG – Palestinian Wastewater Engineers Group
Countries: Palestine, Jordan, Italy
Year: 2020 – 2022
Project objectives:The Mediterranean region is affected by high pressure on aquifers due to irrigation activities. Moreover, water desalination is still a costly and energy-demanding process. MEDISS aims at improving the quality of saline groundwater of Palestine (Jordan Valley), Jordan (Aqaba Governorate), Italy (Arborea) and Tunisia (Gabès) – by proposing alternative and innovative irrigation systems (i.e. the use of treated wastewater and desalination of brackish water) for higher quality and more diversified cultivations (dates, citrus, etc.).
