The project aimed to improve the drinking water supply situation in three medium-sized cities and 260 rural communities in the regions of Azilal, Ben Guerir and Ouarzazate. On behalf of EBRD, HYDROPHIL monitored the project to ensure that the investments with a total value of EUR 81 million are implemented within time and budget and in accordance with the project legal agreements. The project included the construction and extension of three water treatment plants (250 – 400 l/s), the construction of appurtenant water pumping stations, the extension of water supply networks and the provision of increased water resources from large open reservoirs (Titouane dam with a holding capacity of 270 M m³).
