Zero Waste Water Facility

A lot of water currently is wasted because of inefficient harvesting and treatment. There are a number of zero wastewater initiatives like wastewater treatment system, decentralized wastewater treatment system, rainwater harvesting and detention pond that may help solve the problem.

In a wastewater treatment system, water from a septic tank goes through a collection bin, filter system and then exposed to ultraviolet treatment. While in rainwater harvesting, rainwater is captured by a cistern, then undergoes chlorine treatment and through a sand filter before it finally goes to overhead tanks. Detention ponds are basins that receive and hold runoffs for release at a predetermined rate. It helps reduce the peak runoff delivered to storm sewers and streams.

In order to implement these initiatives there must be leadership and vision; support structures; zero wastewater technologies; and advocacy.
