The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completed construction Jan. 31 of a wastewater treatment plant on Forward Operating Base Shindand in Herat province, western Afghanistan. The project, which was built by an Afghan-owned and operated firm with oversight by USACE, promotes sanitary conditions and good public health practices for troops and other residents of the FOB. The system can treat up to 930,000 liters of wastewater per day.
