In the past, the Emirate of Ajman had no sewage treatment infrastructure. Through a combination of septic tanks and tanker transportation, wastewater was disposed of in an open lagoon, creating many environmental problems. Water is a scarce resource. Treatment, therefore, offers an alternative source that is both sustainable and economically advantageous. With the GoA, BESIX has played a pioneering role in this field. By establishing a modern sewerage system in Ajman, ASPCL has eliminated the risks to public health and environment linked to the discharge of untreated water.
