description.abstract The sewage treatment plant in Doha-South uses primary, secondary and tertiary treatment units for treating predominantly domestic sewage. The treated effluent, is used in irrigating agricultural farms for growing animal fodder and in landscape irrigation in Doha. The stabilized sludge is used as a soil conditioner. Samples are collected regularly at the plant inlet as well as before and after each treatment process. The raw sewage is characterized by high dissolved solids, medium strength BOD, low COD/BOD ratio, high concentration of chloride, sulphate and sulfide due to septic sewage. These are typical characteristics of the sewage in this region. The plant is designed, operated and maintained so as to ensure safety and reliability in the treated effluent quality. Any overloading of the treatment processes is handled effectively. The reclaimed • /ater quality meets the international standards and guidelines for landscape irrigation and farming. No evidence of disease amongst workers or the public has been observed from the water reuse. en_US
