Wastewater Management in Israel More than 93% of the wastewater are treated to secondary and tertiary quality. Currently 36% are tertiary while the target is 90% in 2016. About 80% of the treated wastewater are reused for agriculture. The target is 90% in less than 5 years
Actions that stimulated the achievements: • Clear governmental policy that included legislation along with financial incentives • New regulation - standards for unrestricted agricultural irrigation Reclamation plant Water is too precious to be used only once!
Suggested Global Goals By 2025, to double (increase/reduce) the percentage of: • Wastewater that is not collected safely from households • Wastewater that is discharged into the natural environment • Urban wastewater that is treated for safe reuse in agriculture and industrial processes • Amount of water pollution arising from agriculture and industry By 2025, to double / reduce the percentage of tailoring to local requirements and conditions.
Wastewater Management Roundtable Outcomes and Suggestions Wastewater are an important resource and not a waste • By 2025, to double the percentage of wastewater that are collected, treated and reused. • International commitment to work action.
