Wastewater from hospitals is considered to be one of the major sources of domestic wastewater which generally includes material disposed of through toilets, sinks, tubs and showers, washing machines and the like. This wastewater when discharge to bodies of water without treatment will cause negative effect in the environment as well as nearby community.

The implementation of the project is an outcome of positive feedback of the facility implemented in different parts of the province that gives interest to the local government.
