Impacts of Untreated wastewater in Palestine
Impact of untreated wastewater on natural water bodies: Integrated risk assessment


Water resources in arid and semi-arid regions are often very vulnerable to anthropogenic and natural changes. In Palestine, (i) the per capita water availability is decreasing continuously, (ii) water resources mismanagement especially in agriculture is significant and (iii) supplementary water sources including water harvesting and wastewater reuse is getting high importance.

The development of sustainable water supply is a challenging task and the increasing demands for water for different uses require a broad range of water management strategies and tools.
