FS stalls plans to build plant for treatment of liquid wastes
by PIO release

The proposed establishment of a sewerage treatment plant (STP) for liquid waste at the Slaughterhouse Compound to lessen the load of the Baguio STP in South Sanitary Camp has yet to materialize, an official of the City Veterinary Office said.

City Veterinarian Brigit P. Piok said the feasibility study for the project is still subject to public bidding, reason why the realization of the project will have to take more time.

Experts earlier proposed to the city government the establishment of a STP for liquid waste within the Slaughterhouse Compound to help reduce the volume of waste treated at the Sanitary Camp STP.

Piok said liquid wastes generated at the city public market and the city abattoir are directly disposed to the STP.

She said the feasibility study can only push through after its  conduct is bid out and awarded to the winning proponent.

Once the establishment of the STP is found viable, Piok said the terms of reference for the implementation of the project will be prepared and will again be subject to public bidding.

She said bulk of the city’s liquid waste come from the city public market and abattoir, which is why the City Environment and Parks Management Office recommended a separate STP for the liquid waste coming from these areas.

The city’s STP was designed to treat 8,500 cubic meters of liquid waste daily, but  because there are now more sewer connections resulting from the rise in population, the plant now treats over 12,000 cubic meters of liquid waste daily.

Among the recommendations is for the local government to install modular STPs in certain areas in the public market and the Slaughterhouse Compound.

The outcome of the feasibility study will determine the direction to be undertaken by the concerned office in addressing the treatment of the liquid waste.

Piok expressed confidence that the bidding for the feasibility study will be completed in due time so that the project will push through before it will again be overtaken by circumstances.
