  • 1. A Vision for a future wastewater system of Alexandria city Helaly Abdel Hady Helaly (1) Samaa Maher Abdel Aziz (3) (1) “General Manager of Industrial wastewater, Sludge and Reuse Sector, Alexandria Sanitary Drainage Company- Egypt”. (2) “Manager of Industrial Wastewater Studies and Research Department- Alexandria Sanitary Drainage Co. – Egypt"”. Keywords : Vision, wastewater system, future, environment, public health, sustainability. In 1999, Alexandria Sanitary Drainage Company (ASDCO) - Egypt developed a strategic plan which included a clear mission and vision of the future. The mission was established as safeguarding the public health and environment of the citizens of Alexandria. ASDCO does this by collecting, treating and safely disposing wastewater. Focusing on the public interest led by the Governorate, has resulted in significant improvement to many facets of the Alexandria environment. This new interest in community improvements required that ASDCO examined its mission and vision to ensure that these statements reflect the need to revitalize Alexandria. The adopted mission and vision were reviewed and it was found that it may be appropriate to update these fundamental operating principles. The purpose of this update is to expand the benefits to include the increased economic benefits associated with water resources free of sanitary pollution, and the increased public safety related to the appropriate control of storm waters. In order to achieve Alexandria strategic vision for 2037, the future vision for the wastewater system will be fulfilled through: Effective wastewater system establishment; Ensuring and improving aquatic environment of Lake Maryout as one of the major priorities for improving future Alexandria wastewater system as well as providing a new water resource; Achieving full cost recovery of operation and maintenance expenses and ultimately total cost recovery of future wastewater system to sustain, preserve, and enhance the quality of the wastewater system. The main purpose of this study is to establish “A Vision for a future wastewater system of Alexandria city. This paper will include a description and assessment of current Alexandria wastewater system and a vision for a sustainable wastewater system in Alexandria up to 2037. Including the objectives that should be met in order to reach sustainability.
