Constructed wetland technology options for the provision of enhanced sanitation in small, economically impoverished communities: a capacity building solution
The Centre for Alternative Wastewater Treatment (CAWT) is proposing to develop a training program aimed at transferring knowledge to local agencies/organizations overseeing the implementation of wetland technologies and other appropriate treatment technologies devoted to providing increased access to wastewater treatment and hence increased sanitation. This work would be developed to address local conditions including both the physical and human resources for that region. The intent is to develop the capacity within the region for the implementation, operation and monitoring of technologies dedicated to the treatment of human sewage. The aim is to provide greater treatment of human sewage and by doing so to provide increased protection to local drinking water supplies.
