SP to study proposal for Mobile Wastewater Treatment Plant

THE 20th City Council headed by Vice Mayor Jocelyn Rodriguez, through the committee on health and health insurance chaired by Councilor Maria Lourdes S. Gaane will soon tackle the proposed Mobile Wastewater Treatment Plant (MWTP) to treat domestic wastewater for septic tanks.

The proposal was submitted by the Vital Water Waste Management Services, a newly established company which operates a MWTP that is installed at the back of the fuso fighter truck and may be transferred to operate in the client’s site.

According to Engr. Jennifer Lastimosa, business development manager, the objective of the project is to help the community and the environment ensuring that the wastewater discharged to the environment will pass the standard required by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Engr. Lastimosa said the maximum treatment capacity is 20 cubic meters of discharge per day which only requires a certificate of non-coverage from the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB).

It can break down unwanted waste leaving no sludge at a fast rate with a low carbon footprint. This technology is effective because it produces clear and odorless water, said Engr. Lastimosa.

“With our project, we can help solve the problem of the disposal of septic waste,” she cited. (SP/JBDacer)
