Welcome to the wastewater treatment planning guide for small scale projects in developing countries. This guide is intended to help you narrow down the many options available for treating your wastewater on-site. It is formatted for use on a mobile device to be easily accessible while you are visiting the site. Once you understand the benefits of the various treatment options, you can work with an experienced engineer or installer to design a system to match your site specifically.
