Description:

The paper presents a wastewater management proposal for four agricultural municipalities in the Nicosia’s province in Cyprus, Lithrododa, Mathiatis, Analioda and Sia. A number of both centralized and decentralized management solutions are examined. The existing situation is recorded and data are gathered to get an accurate picture of the study area. Several proposals of alternative scenarios for the selection of the optimal layout of the treatment units and their entailing costs are presented. The choice of the “optimal treatment method” and the “optimal scenario” is achieved by the combined use of the AHP and TOPSIS multi-criteria methods with the application of financial, environmental and social criteria.
