This centralized system caters for a camp of 28 guests, 12 members of management and 35 staff members. The reticulation of waste from guest units, the camp kitchen and laundry and the staff village is achieved through septic tanks and pump tanks at these areas.

The main treatment plant consists of two 5000L final holding tanks in series followed by three ECOROCK-5000 units in parallel, allowing up to 15000L of water to be treated on a daily basis. Final effluent is treated by an inline chlorinator and sprayed into a set of sprinklers.

This treatment plant requires only 250W (to power the final submersible pump) and uses  less than 1kWh/24 hours.
