What is the importance of Sewerage?
One of the fundamental principles of community sanitation is to remove all decomposable matter, solid waste, liquid or gaseous, as soon as possible, after it is produced, to a safe place, without causing any nuisance, and dispose of it in a suitable manner so that it is permanently harmless.
Sanitation, while primarily motivated by preventive health goals, has come to be recognized as a way of life. The development of a country's sanitation infrastructure could serve as a sensitive indicator of its level of prosperity.
It goes without saying that a sewerage system is critical for achieving the goals of good sanitation. While the provision of potable drinking water takes precedence, the importance of the sewerage system cannot be overlooked, as all of the water used by the community has to flow back as sewage loaded with the wastes of community living, which, if not properly collected, treated, and disposed of, would create serious water pollution problems.
1: Improving one's standard of living
The system has already improved the quality of life and hygienic conditions in the areas where it operates. The operation of the sewerage system has greatly relieved these areas of previous problems caused by the continuous emptying of cesspools. Previously, hotels and apartment complexes were required to empty and maintain septic tanks and soak ways. The sewerage system is a safer and more appropriate way to dispose of liquid waste.
2: Conservation of the natural environment
Previously, all sewage waste was discharged in septic tanks and cesspits, causing ground water pollution in the areas where such waste was discharged. Polluted waters eventually ended up in the sea, where they caused a variety of risks and other environmental issues. Furthermore, the wastewater treatment plant generates byproducts like treated biosolids and methane. Treated sludge is used as a soil-improving substance primarily for tree cultivations, whereas methane is used for electricity generation, accounting for a portion of the power required to operate the plant.
3: Water conservation and processing
Water is a significant natural resource for our country, and it should be managed as efficiently as possible. The wastewater treatment plant's tertiary treated effluent is reused for agricultural and other purposes. The amount of water saved after the project is completed is expected to exceed 10 million cubic meters per year, which is roughly the amount of water that can be stored in a dam. Every year, approximately 4 million cubic meters of water are reused.
4: Economic growth and tourism
The most significant benefit of the system is that it promotes sustainable development, environmental protection, and an improvement in the quality of life in our town, with a subsequent impact on the development of tourism and the economy in general.
5: Flooding occurrences
The construction of major storm water drainage systems reduces the social and financial consequences of direct property damage caused by flooding, as well as the destruction of basic infrastructure such as roads, sidewalks, and underground cables. It also reduces any indirect damage caused by traffic congestion and makes walking easier.
6: Living conditions
As a result of the foregoing, the sewerage system contributes to the further development and improvement of the resident’s standard of living.
Considering all of the benefits listed above, there is no doubt that if we all work together, we will enjoy a higher quality of life for ourselves and our children in the future, as well as provide a better environment for future generations.
