Decentralized Wastewater Treatment Systems (DEWATS) for the Bear Rescue Center, Tam Dao National Park, Viet Nam

The Bear Rescue Center in Tam Dao National Park, Vinh Phuc province, was one of the areas chosen for the application of a decentralized wastewater treatment system (DEWATS). Around 50 bears that once lived in zoos, performed in the streets, or were victims of other cruel practices are now living in the rescue center.

The rescue center is located inside a national park which is bound by strict laws on the discharge of wastewater. The center needs an effective system to treat wastewater produced by both human staff and animals.
