A total of 14 wastewater treatment zones will be separated in line with the population growth in the future, according to Yangon’s urban development strategy plan.
The Yangon City Development Committee will establish a plan to expand wastewater treatment systems when new satellite towns are expanded outside of Yangon’s municipal boundaries.
The construction of a wastewater treatment plant at Thanhlyetsoon of Botahtaung Township, began on 12 April 2003 and was completed on 17 January 2005 on a land area of ​​5.56 acres.
Yangon’s sewage system area was built to treat the 3.25 million gallons of sewages discharged daily by 300,000 people living six downtown townships in the city.
Yangon’s current wastewater treatment system can only cover five per cent of the city’s population, and according to the Strategic Urban Development Plan of Greater Yangon jointly designed by the Yangon City Development Committee and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), it is planned to separate 14 wastewater treatment zones in line with the population that will increase in the future.
Small-scale research and construction of wastewater treatment systems, such as the construction of machines will be carried out in places where it is difficult to connect to the sewage line, with a machine that can treat 2,200 gallons of wastewater per day according to the original factory’s treatment method. The engineering staff will carry out the research in order to carry and clean the sewage with septic tanker.
Since 2005, in addition to 24-inch and 36-inch diametre sewage pipes from six townships in the city, sewage is being cleaned daily by more than 100 septic tankers. — TWA/GNLM
