In the Sultanate of Oman, data from the late 1990s showed total discharges to the sea by treated effluents from Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) of 250,000 m3/day, equivalent to 91,250 x 10 3 m3/year from 8 STPs. Data for the year 2003 show much lower discharges (38,705 m3/day, equivalent to 14,127x 10 3 m3/year from 267 STPs). This was due to a wise...

... As the region experience high temperature and salinity, desalination plants aggravate the continuous discharge of highly saline brine leading to serious ecological damage. In late 1990s, data showed a total discharge by treated effluents (domestic and industrial) of more than 250,000 m 3 /day and this are discharged from various Sewage Treatment Plant along the Coast of Oman (Al Muzaini et al., 2004). By-products of these discharges are suspected to lead the changes in temperature, salinity along with the physical and chemical composition of the sea. ...
