The Médiouna wastewater treatment plant inaugurated this week in the Greater Casablanca region of Morocco will treat wastewater from 40,000 people to be reused for agricultural irrigation.

Operated by Lydec, a subsidiary of SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT, the company said it is the first wastewater treatment plant in Morocco and in North Africa to use a membrane filtration process.

The technology will be used to re-use treated wastewater for agricultural irrigation with the aim to help protect the city of Oued Hassar from wastewater discharge from the Médiouna and conserve water resources.

The Médiouna plant is part of a wider investment program in the Greater Casablanca Region, designed to protect the environment from wastewater discharge, conserve water resources and provide inhabitants with a better quality of life, in particular high quality bathing water.

His Majesty Mohammed VI, King of Morocco, inaugurated the Médiouna wastewater treatment plant in the presence of François Hollande, President of the French Republic, Gérard Mestrallet, chairman and CEO of GDF SUEZ, and Jean-Louis Chaussade, chief executive officer of SUEZ ENVIRONNEMENT.
