Wastewater Treatment for Sustainable Tourism and Recreation

Wastewater Treatment and Recreation Park

Bhubaneswar City is the administrative capital of Orissa, India, with a natural river system running through it. It has experienced a spiraling population growth rate from 16,512 in 1951 to a current estimate of almost 1 million. This growth has resulted in excessive wastewater generation, estimated at 180 MLD. The city has no centralized sewage treatment, thus, untreated and semi-treated sewage flow into the city's water bodies that creates unsanitary conditions. A strip of wetland, NICCO Park, was earmarked for development.

Water and Sanitation for Sustainable Tourism

Boracay Island is the Philippines' premiere beach destination, boasting of kilometers of powdery, fine, white sand. Approximately a million tourists flock to this destination to enjoy the sun and the beach. Before the entry of the Boracay Island Water Company (BIWC), the existing wastewater treatment plant was no longer able to competently perform, given the huge volume and changing characteristics of wastewater generated. This was a critical issue, which can affect its prime economic activity. Untreated wastewater seeps into the beaches, presenting aesthetical and sanitation concerns.

Eco-Lagoon

Nusa Dua was established in the 1970s in Bali, Indonesia to provide world-class facilities within the island. It is an enclave of four- and five-star hotels, with an 18-hole golf course and a retail village. In its concept development, Nusa Dua prioritized eco-friendly approaches towards the natural physical surroundings, and preservation of the sociocultural setting. Environmental concerns are also prioritized as demonstrated by the wastewater treatment system.
