The MEDISS pilot project in Palestine, managed by the lead beneficiary Palestinian Wastewater Engineers Group (PWEG) and the Palestinian partner, Governorate of Jericho, is commissioned to collect surface water in Wadi Quilt, store it in a ground pool, blend it with saline underground water and treated wastewater from Jericho city Wastewater Treatment Plant, and then use it to irrigate 400 ha of palm farms, benefiting 55 Palestinian farmers of the Palm Farmers’ Cooperative Association. 

During this period of pilot plant implementation, Palestinian Wastewater Engineers Group is carrying out field survey activities aiming to collect all the necessary data for the preparation of tender documents for the pilot plant in Palestine, planned to be launched in the coming month. 

Mediterranean Integrated System for Water Supply (MEDISS) addresses the problem of water shortage, which strongly affects the agricultural sector, by encouraging the use of nonconventional water in 4 project areas:  Italy (Arborea), Palestine (Jordan Valley), Jordan (Araba Valley) and Tunisia (Bachima); this through developing 4 pilot plants comparing 4 valuable solutions to overcome this issue.
