Mas­ter Plan Sani­ta­ry Engi­nee­ring Ser­vices Bah­rain — SEA

The Natio­nal Mas­ter Plan Sani­ta­ry Engi­nee­ring Ser­vices (NMPSES) nee­ded to be upgraded for the peri­od up to the year 2030. Due to a strong growth in eco­no­my as well as in popu­la­ti­on the­re will be gro­wing was­te water and sludge quan­ti­ties. The exis­ting capa­ci­ties must be enhan­ced, new deve­lo­p­ment on rec­lai­med land requi­re addi­tio­nal infra­st­ruc-ture. Addi­tio­nal STPs are plan­ned, the sewa­ge sys­tem has to be exten­ded. The trea­ted was­te water will be reu­sed to 100 % in future. For the incre­a­sing sludge quan­ti­ties an envi­ron­ment friend­ly solu­ti­on must be found.


The Stra­te­gic Envi­ron­men­tal Assess­ment (SEA) covers all abo­ve-men­tio­ned aspects. In addi­ti­on to an Envi­ron­men­tal Impact Assess­ment (EIA) the SEA sets the frame­work for future EIAs of pro­jects wit­hin the Mas­ter Plan. It descri­bes the pos­si­ble or expec­ted impacts on the envi­ron­ment on the same plan­ning level as the Mas­ter Plan and deve­lo­ps mea­su­res to mini­mi­ze or avoid nega­ti­ve impacts, which have to be respec­ted when rea­li­zing the plan­ned infra­st­ruc­tu­re extension.
