The project aims to urgently remedy a 100,000m2 contaminated lagoon in the city of Russeifa (15km north-east of the capital Amman) (“Phase 1” of the Project). The study aims to identify and address a long-existing, complex problem by resolving misconnected and illegal sewage contributing to the lagoon and building feasible solutions to improve existing environmental and health conditions. Our services included preparing a Baseline Study, a comprehensive Technical Feasibility Assessment, a detailed financial analysis of the project, a Resource Efficiency Assessment, and an Environmental and Social Assessment (ESA) study. The project was managed in compliance with EBRD standards.
