DEWATS For Ateneo de Iloilo

The Ateneo de Iloilo – Santa Maria Catholic School (AdI–SMCS) is a private, Catholic college-preparatory school in the City of Iloilo that is under the management of Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus.

As per ordered by the local government of Iloilo, establishments considered as contributor to the deterioration of the environment are required to implement a waste treatment facility. Since wastewater from schools is considered to be one of the major sources of domestic wastewater (generally includes material disposed of through toilets, sinks, and the like), they will be under the mandate.

Ateneo de Iloilo, as part of its compliance in the local and national standards regarding the wastewater discharge, decided to construct DEWATS facility as their primary tool.
