Abstract: A central sewage treatment plant for treating domestic and industrial wastewater of the Great Tel Aviv Area is to be constructed. The sludge produced during the modified biological treatment, including nitrification and denitrification in the same biological reactor, will be discharged into the sea through a 5 km long marine outfall, after 16 to 22 hours retention and 10 to 14 days sludge age. Extensive oceanographical, biological and physical studies have been carried out with the object of determining design criteria for the outfall and to obtain environmental background data on seawater, sea-bottom and sea-life. A data collection scheme will be run concurrently with the operation of the outfall in order to detect any changes in the marine and beach environments that may take place.
