The purpose of this research was to assess the impact of irrigation bytreated wastewater on the Tunisian olive oil quality. In this experiment, olives from fields irrigated with TWW were transported to the laboratory and mixed with other batches of olives, at different proportions, of the same variety and coming from olive groves not irrigated.In order to meet the work schedule of Tunisian mills, the mixtures of olives obtained were stored in a laboratory at room temperature for 3, 6 and 9 days before being crushed. The results showed that the acidity and the carotene content of the oils does not depend on the irrigation system, but are dependent on the duration of olive storage before the extraction. On the contrary, the irrigation system affects the oxidation state of the oils and their fatty acid composition.
