The main task of the Sewerage Board of Limassol - Amathus (SBLA) is the construction, operation and maintenance of the public sewerage and storm water drainage system of Greater Limassol Area and therefore, to improve the hygienic and environmental condition and the quality of life in the area. The implementation and operation of the system has and is still contributing substantially in the economic activity in our city.
Construction works of the 1st Phase of the project started back in 1992 and completed in 1995. The second Phase started in 1999 and completed 2003. In 2006, the implementation of the final phase of the project, has started with the expansion of the "Moni" Wastewater Water Treatment Plant. The plant which is situated in the eastern part of the city, is in full operation since 2008. In addition, many other works including the expansion the sewerage network, consisting of main and secondary pipelines and other major components of the system, such as pumping stations have been upgraded. Currently SBLA is intensively working in the construction of a second Wastewater Treatment Plant in Polemidia in the Western area of Limassol. Construction works are in progress and it is expected that by September 2021, it will be fully operational. In addition, SBLA is working in the upgrading and rehabilitation of a major part of the main collector, along the critical touristic area on the coastal road of Limassol, with the use of the “No-Dick” method.
The Limassol Sewerage and Drainage Project that has been implemented to-date, includes the extension of the storm water drainage system, consisting of storm-water drainage network and two retention ponds. New major works are now in the process of implementation and construction of additional storm water drainage works with two major Contracts, whereas two new retention ponds are also scheduled to be constructed by 2023-2024, in order to eliminate the flooding problems which are still encountered in some areas of the city.
Our objectives include also the enhancing and promoting the use of renewable resources, such as re-use of recycled wastewater, digested biosolids and the re-use of electricity generated through bio-gas re-use, covering 40% of the energy needs of the Sewerage Treatment Plant at Moni.
The initial goal of SBLA was to complete the implementation of the sewerage network across the Greater Limassol Area, by year 2013 but as a result of the prevailed economic conditions of 2012 onwards, this target has been moved to 2021. The total project cost of this phase, is expected to exceed EUR 450 million. Significant sewerage and drainage infrastructure projects have been implemented to-date, of a total worth of over 360 million euro. These works have enhanced the prospects and the potential for further progress of Limassol. They have indeed contributed tremendously towards the progress achieved to-date in the area, covering basic needs of the community, improving the quality of life and protecting public health, as well as the environment.
Finally, I would like to express my personal gratitude and thanks to all those who, who for the last thirty years, have with their cooperation and assistance contributed tremendously, to the promotion of the vision of implementing one of the most important environmental project of our city.
