Site selection is the process of screening potential building sites and weighing their relative benefits and drawbacks, avoiding unsuitable areas, and determining the best location for a wastewater treatment plant, which reuses treated wastewater and faecal sludge.
This includes a number of technical and non-technical (e.g., environmental, social, and financial) factors and criteria, all of which are important and must be carefully and adequately considered.
What are the process to Selection of an appropriate site for WWTPs?
The selection of an appropriate site for the construction of a wastewater treatment plant is critical, to maximizing environmental and social benefits while ensuring the long-term financial viability of the entire wastewater management scheme.
Coordinate with local governments and other project initiatives, to ensure that local regulations are followed
The criteria for site selection must be consistent with the regulatory requirements, and standards established by local governments. These regulations, however, may be ambiguous, contradictory, or misleading.
Coordinate with officials for site selection
It is critical to be aware of the official and unofficial entities with whom you should coordinate, during the site selection process. All stakeholders (or their legal representatives) should be included in the decision-making process.
Stakeholder identification and mapping, analyses of stakeholders' importance and influence, research into their concerns and interests, or a stakeholder strategy plan can all help you achieve this goal.
Maintain regular and close contact with the local government
To ensure that your project is properly integrated into existing land use and local development plans, you should work closely with the local government (e.g., municipality).
Determine which projects may 'compete' with your sanitation project, and ensure that the local government aligns the project with other project initiatives. Maintaining proper coordination and communication will aid in the discovery of anything of significance.
Make certain that your information or submissions are clear
The information you disseminate is easily misinterpreted. As a result, be prepared to justify all project steps to anyone at any time.
To avoid misunderstandings, take the following precautions:
1. In person follow up.
2. Prepare to explain the project several times.
3. Use illustrative material in your work (graphs, maps, handouts etc.).
Conduct formal and informal assessments of site-related interests
As much as you intend to maintain close contact with the local community, and listen to their concerns, the method you choose to share information and updates with them is critical.
