Wastewater Pond Technology


The SG promotes waste stabilization ponds WSP for wastewater treatment in both industrialised and developing countries; it also co-ordinates studies on the performance of full-scale and pilot-scale waste stabilization pond systems around the world; develops internationally agreed methodology for pond performance monitoring and performance evaluation; identifies research needs for the development of pond systems for biodegradable wastewater treatment; and develops international technology transfer mechanisms related to ponds technology. From the last two specialist conferences, the SG is now also working on the integration of ponds technology to a number of other wastewater treatment technologies, and the SG is also lately looking at the link between sustainable wastewater treatment technology such as ponds and green energy. Any member of IWA is very welcome to join the Wastewater Pond Technology Specialist Group.
