State-of-the-art on-site wastewater treatment facility planned for Insein

Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) will build a high-tech on-site wastewater treatment plant near Aung Zeya Bridge in Insein Township and provide services to Insein, Hlinethaya, Shwepyitha and Hline townships, according to U Zaw Min Htut, Staff Officer of YCDC’s Engineering Department (Water and Sanitation).
“Before we started this project, we had been doing research since 2022 on a 10-cubic-metre small-scale on-site wastewater treatment plant at Thanlyatsun Sewage Treatment site in Botahtaung Township. The wastewater treatment facility to be built in Insein is a 100 cubic metres capacity. The sewage and wastewater discharged from houses will be transported by vacuum trucks to discharge to the wastewater treatment plant before sending them to the sun-dried tank. From there, it will be separated and filtered before discharging into the rivers as pure water. The residents in the area can save a lot of service charges as there is a treatment plant around their townships, and it will also reduce the amount of sewage discharged into the drainage canals. After the wastewater treatment plant is constructed, we can provide service to Insein, Hlinethaya, Shwepyitha, and Hline townships,” U Zaw Min Htut said.
The high-tech on-site wastewater treatment plants that treat water to reach a certain purity level before being returned to the rivers will be built in the townships located near the rivers and creeks in Yangon Region. — ASH/TH
