Ashkelon Central Wastewater Treatment Plant
A central Wastewater Treatment Plant for the city of Ashkeon, including a line from the city to the plant. The Wastewater Treatment Plant in Ashkelon was constructed in the midst of orchards, on the border of a natural reservation, north of Ashkelon.
The facility was planned to handle 34,000 cubic meters of wastewater a day, in the activated sludge method. Its location required laying out a gravitational line in a minimal slope to transport the wastewater. The line was built out of constructed PVC, 1.2 meters in diameter and 3 kilometers in length. Since it was a gravitational line, the company had to dig up to 8 meters under the ground.
