Work has begun on the $25 million development project of wastewater networks in more than 20 villages in the Aley caza. The project is funded by the German KFW Development Bank.

Wastewater networks will be installed in the villages of Ainab, Aitat, Aramoun, Baysour, Bchamoun, Bsatin, Deir Oubil, Kabrchmoun, Kayfoun, and Remhala among others.
Local Boudai Contracting firm is handling the project, which serves more than 20,000 households, according to Michel Saad, Vice President of the union of Shahhar municipalities. This company is in charge of the installation of the water networks and their connection to the Ghadir wastewater treatment plant in Khalde.

The German bank had initially allocated $13 million for the project, but later raised the sum due to unforeseen complications related to the region’s potable water and phone networks. “We have been facing some obstacles, trying not to damage other infrastructure during the development of the networks,” said Saad.

The project is expected to benefit more than 100,000 individuals and will be delivered in the span of two years.
