These two stations, whose implementation cost is 30 MD, are part of the project to increase the water production capacity in Greater Tunis.

Speaking to reporters during the inauguration ceremony, Prime Minister Youssef Chahed said this project, which includes the installation of a water treatment plant with a production capacity of 100 One thousand cubic meters per day, will increase Greater Tunis's supply, i.e. one million cubic meters of water per day.

The second project, which consists of a water treatment plant with a production capacity of 1 million m3 / day, will increase the daily production capacity of the complex.

He added that this pilot project in the field of water recovery using new technologies will ensure the supply of drinking water until the year 2021.

The Prime Minister stressed the importance of all components of the project that will meet the needs of Greater Tunis in drinking water in the years 2019-2020 and 2021.

Nearly 2.5 million people will benefit from this project which will also improve environmental indicators and save water, Chahed said.

The Prime Minister also added that projects to mobilise other water resources representing 2/3 of investments until 2030 and that will be carried out from next year in some governorates, such as Sousse and Sfax will certainly guarantee the sustainability of water resources management.

CEO of SONEDE, Mousbah Helali, for his part, considered that the Rajii water treatment plant, one of the components of the project, will allow recycling between 3 and 4 million cubic meters of waste water.

The project will strengthen the water production capacity while ensuring the electrification of the Ghedir El Golla production complex which is the only water source supplying the entire district of Tunis and Cape Bon
