Currently a waste water collection and a treatment plantare under construction to serve north Tubas city. It is expected in 2019 that the sewage system serving north tubas will be put in operation. South Tubas is not to be served by the waste water network due to gravity reasons;the objectives of this project are to design a new sewage network and a conceptual treatment plant for south Tubas and Tammunvillage in order to reduce pollution in these areas.

Mainly, cesspits are used and emptied by private tankers for sewage; these are disposed of into nearby Wadis or near the sides of the roads.It is basically earth or concrete holes allowing waste water to infiltrate into the ground. A feasibility study has been done for south Tubas, Al Far'a area, Talluza, Tammun, Al Badan, AsiraAlshamalyaand other small communities.
