OUR VISION

Water And Wastewater Africa specialize in Decentralised Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants in South Africa, Africa,

and abroad by providing solutions through expert consultation, sustainable products, project management, and services.

We treat sewage, greywater, water, and industrial wastewater, as well as remove fat, oil and grease.

Company Profile
THE CURRENT APPROACH
TO WASTEWATER MANAGEMENT
ONSITE & OFFSITE SANITATION

The current approach is either onsite or offsite sanitation.

Onsite sanitation includes open defecation, Ventilated Improved Pit (VIP) latrine, soap pits, and septic tanks.

It poses a health risk pollutes the environment and aggravates social inequality.

 

Offsite sanitation includes conservancy tanks, piped sewerage networks and centralised wastewater treatment works. Offsite sanitation is infrastructure and energy-intensive, is expensive, and requires a high level of skill

to build, operate and maintain.

Most distribution pipelines are old, resulting in increased water losses. Added to this, high urbanisation trends increase the strain on wastewater treatment works to comply, causing the discharge of large quantities

of untreated or partially treated sewage into our water resources.

The solution is Decentralised Wastewater Treatment and local reuse.

It is based on the important principle of devolving the level of application so that

wastewater can be treated at affordable costs, cutting the costs of pumping

long distances, and promoting local reuse of treated wastewater.

We need to completely change our perception of wastewater,

its treatment & reuse.

What is Decentralised Wastewater Management?

Decentralised Wastewater Management includes the complete collection, treatment, and disposal, and/or reuse of wastewater close to or at the point where wastewater is generated. This concept can be applied in rural settings and urban settlements.

Design Approach

Decentralised Wastewater Management considers all necessary factors to best

approach your individual scenario:

 

  • Area available

  • Size and density of the population

  • Level of economic development

  • Technical capacity and government systems in place

  • Quality of wastewater required for discharge and/or reuse

WASTEWATER AS A RESOURCE RATHER THAN A LIABILITY
THE SOLUTION

A Paradigm shift towards Water Sensitive Design and Planning builds the bridge from onsite

and offsite sanitation to more affordable, low-energy, and easy-to-operate and -maintain

water and wastewater management systems.

 

Water And Wastewater Africa specialize in these systems, that beautifully blend into the environment and limit the onsite water intake by recycling up to 90% of wastewater for onsite reuse.
