Wastewater comes from septic tanks, cesspools and the sewage system. It is what the name says: waste. If we let it flow away just like that it is unhealthy and polluting. For the inhabitants and visitors of Bonaire, for the groundwater and for our coral reefs. It contains pathogenic germs. Also, it is so rich in nutrients that algae and seaweeds grow too fast and suffocate the coral reefs.

Collecting and purifying wastewater prevents that it ends up in our groundwater and in the sea. Moreover, we can reuse treated wastewater for irrigation. In this way we save water, stay healthy and protect the underwater world of Bonaire. This belongs to the top 10 best dive sites in the world and yearly attracts large flows of tourists
