Through this project the Għarb Local Council is:
- supporting Malta's efforts to improve the tourist product on the Island of Gozo, by making it more competitive as a unique rural destination.
The Wied il-Mielaħ area, until a few months ago, was a neglected area, used mainly for dumping of all sorts of rubbish and construction material and mostly recognised for awful smell coming out from the sewage outfall. This state of affairs is now being reversed. Gozo is also acknowledged to offer a unique diving experience, an area which has seen continued growth in the incoming tourist to Gozo along the years. With the removal of the sewage outflow, the coastal area is expected to become a new prime site for the diving industry.
