Alofi Wastewater Reduction Project

Objectives

To reduce the risk of pollution of Niue’s freshwater lens and coastal waters through improved management and treatment of wastewater to minimize exacerbation of the effects of climate change on the environment and to protect the health and livelihood of Niue’s population.

Outcomes

  1. Increased protection of the water quality of both the freshwater lens, for drinking water use, and the near-shore coastal water ecosystem, for fishing and recreation, by repairing and installing septic tanks to prevent the discharge of raw wastewater.
  2. Households have increased understanding and awareness of the implications of wastewater and its management to protect the freshwater lens and coastal waters from pollution that would exacerbate the impacts of climate change.
  3. Wastewater treatment options for septage (septic tank solids) and septic tank effluent have been evaluated and selected for further funding proposals
