Kapit Septic Sludge Treatment Plant


PROJECT Project Title :
Kapit Septic Sludge Treatment Plant

Project Background :

All septic tanks need to be desludged regularly in order to maintain treatment efficiency. The current practice in Kapit town is to desludge the septic tank when it is full or blocked. There is also no proper septic sludge treatment facility. The sludge collected from septic tanks is currently being disposed in dump sites.  

The proposed septic sludge treatment plant is located on an 8-acre site about 4 km from Kapit Town center along Jalan Bukit Goram. It is about 1 km from the nearest residential area. 

The plant shall receive and treat septic sludge collected from the septic tanks within Kapit town and its outskirts. The treated sludge shall be disposed on site. This will enable the regular desludging of the septic tanks and package wastewater treatment units in Kapit. This will improve the efficiency of the wastewater treatment facilities in Kapit.

This treatment plant is designed to have an ultimate capacity of 100 m3/day.
