Morocco loses some US$ 510 million each year due to water pollution, said director general of the national office for drinking water (ONEP), Ali Fassi Fihri.

The official deplored that 2.4 billion inhabitants in the world do not have access to an adequate sanitation system, the majority of whom are from developing countries.
