Durban wastewater recycling project and benefits

The revenue from the sale of the treated wastewater for industrial use covers almost all operation and maintenance costs of the treatment plant. After an international biding phase, Durban Water Recycling, a consortium of private companies led by Veolia (formerly Vivendi Water) was chosen to finance, design, construct and operate the tertiary wastewater treatment plant at Southern Wastewater Treatment Works under a 20-year concession contract. Durban Water Recycling funded the entire project and also undertook the risk of meeting the two industrial users’water quality needs, meaning the municipal utility did not incur any extra costs for taxpayers.
