|Title||Potential Of wastewater reuse in Gaza palestine-advantages and hindrances|
The main source of water in Gaza Governorates is Groundwater. The existing situation, with annual recharge of 60 Million Cubic Meter (MCM) and a deficit of approximately 55 MCM/year, has led to reduction in the available quantities of groundwater as well as degradation of water quality. Water demand, for different purposes, will rise continuously from the current level of 117 MCM to about 215 MCM by the year 2020. The stored water in aquifer will decrease with time and the fresh groundwater with less than 250 ppm chloride will not be available if we depend only on groundwater. Using treated effluent for irrigation will minimise the demand on groundwater for agricultural purposes and will reduce the degradation of the groundwater quality. In this case, the groundwater reserved in aquifer will be about 2537 MCM in Gaza aquifer by year 2020 compared to about 1522 MCM if the treated effluent were not used. That means about 1000 MCM will be saved in the aquifer of Gaza in this period.
