Karma Lakelands Installs Sewage Treatment Plant
A sewage treatment plant (STP) helps preserve natural environment against pollution and installation of STPs reduces risk to public health and the environment.
Karma Lakeland’s STP will reportedly clean up half a million litres of sewage per day that will be piped from the massive National Security Guards (NSG) Campus next door, Karma Lakelands residences, Klub Karma and the areas surrounding Karma Lakelands. It is in advanced stages and expected to be commissioned later this month. Treated water will be used for horticulture and irrigation of the entire campus, along with their 9-hole golf course, and for ground water recharge. In so doing, not only is water saved, but it also helps protect the surroundings because otherwise, and usually, tankers which collect sewage from neighboring areas discard the waste next to the highway.
