Sewage plant suppliers form association to improve standards

Local suppliers of wastewater treatment package plants have joined forces to create a self-regulatory association aimed at improving quality and standards within the sector.

The association, named Sewpacksa, was proposed by the Water Institute of South AFrica (WISA) to tackle the negative perceptions surrounding small wastewater treatment works in the country.

It came against a backdrop of the release earlier this year by the Department of Water and Environmental Affairs (DWA) of the "Green Drop Report", whcih portrayed the industry in a negative light.

Sewpacksa reported that the demand for sewage package plants in unserviced or underseviced municipal areas and remote locations was everincreasing, but the supply and management of these plants had been largely unregulated.

One of the association"s first tasks would be to adopt common guidelines and develop an accreditation framework for suppliers, as package plant failures were most commonly ascribed to poor design and construction, insufficient or no maintenance and mechanical breakdown.

Sewpacksa will set out the standards and regulations for package plant industry within the context of existing water management laws and management, which will offer municipalities and end-users greater peace of mind when it comes to the quality of package plants.

Another priority for the association is the adoption of a "Green Droplet" certification process in conjunction with DWA"s current initiative.
