air 1 sskm

Arrangements are underway to maintain the Sewage Treatment Plant in Botahtaung Township, Yangon Region, as an urban heritage as well as to transform it into a museum so that domestic and overseas visitors can visit, according to the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC).
Currently, YCDC is conducting maintenance on formerly used coal-powered boiler blowers that have been preserved as well as electric-powered boiler blowers in use.
The Sewage Treatment Plant was constructed and put into use in Yangon in 1888. The plant used coal-fired boilers to push waste from Yangon’s sewage system to the wastewater treatment plant in Thanlyetsoon before pumping them into the Yangon River. In 1962, after the installation of electric boilers, the operation of coal-fired boilers stopped in 1964.
Currently, the coal-fired boilers operated from 1888 to 1964 are maintained at the plant, and the electric-powered boilers used to push the sewage are in operation. — ASH/TKO
