Design for reuse-harvesting the value of effluent and nutrients for sustaining the operation of sanitation facilities

Saturday, July 10, 2010
Project Status: 
Completed

July 2010 - The Water Resources Commission (WRC) received a €500,000 grant to   introduce a market and end-user oriented planning approach that simultaneously closes the water and nutrient loops called "Design for Reuse" in order to effectively capture the economic value of wastewater and fecal sludge nutrients to help finance, operate and maintain treatment facilities. The project will result in key impacts such as the reduction of the incidence of waterborne diseases, improvement of access to complete sanitation services, and improved operational and financial sustainability of wastewater treatment plants and fecal sludge treatment plants in Ghana.
