The Sewerage Board of Limassol have commissioned LBJ to update the Sewerage Master Plan and Feasibility Study, which was last prepared in year 1995.

The study made recommendations as to the adequacy of the proposed future sewerage scheme and developed two alternatives in terms of wastewater collection and treatment (including location of a second wastewater treatment plant). The study included phased cost estimates of the required works, including investment and projected operations cost. The final output provided a coherent, staged strategy up to 2025 to further develop and extend SBL services in line with local legislation and applicable EU Directives.

As for the treatment works, the existing wastewater treatment plant was constructed in 1992 to serve the Greater Limassol Area, and had design capacity of 22,000 m3/day and utilizes biological treatment with provision for tertiary treatment for effluent reuse in irrigation and ground water recharge. The sludge produced is anaerobically digested and dewatered to be used subsequently in agriculture as a fertilizer.


Kassia’s assignment focused on the treatment works component. The following tasks were undertaken:

Data Collection and initial assessment
