Purification of water effluent from Nablus western treatment plant is considered for reuse it. To achieve this objective, the plant was visited. It was found that the amount of treated wastewater is around12000 m3/day. Economic advanced treatment process can be used to improve the quality of water. However, the water outflows from the plant are pumped for expensive disposal in Israel. Therefore the research team studied and designed a pilot system for advanced treatment. It consists of a sequence treatment processes: sand filtration, microfiltration and chlorination. Purification was done with and without nitrification. Multiple experiments were conducted to study the properties of water system prior and post. From these experiments, it has been noticed that the best system consists of sand filter and chlorination with nitrification. From this system the colonies of fecal were changed from 68 to 0andcolonies of coliform were changed from ∞to 0respectively and the conductivity didn’t change. Based on the pilot study, a detailed design of the sand filter systems was made for the treatment plant. The plant needs 4 filters (3 filters and 1 standby) the dimensions of each filter is 4m x 3m x 3.25m and each filter include two cells. As a conclusion the designed system was found to be feasible and water quality confirms with standards set for agricultural water in Pale
