Shtang constructed a complex CSBR wastewater treatment plant that combined new secondary and tertiary modules with existing primary treatment ponds, but at the same time, prepared for their bypassing if necessary. BOD concentrations are twice the norm for sanitary WW due to streams from a large egg derivative factory.
Snows in winter rendered the work challenging, but heavy machinery for snow removal and heating was used and the original timetables were strictly followed. Furthermore, the plant being situated near the Lebanese border, special protective structures were necessary, as per Home Front Command regulations.
