Dandora Waste Water Treatment Plant

Dandora Waste Water Treatment Plant

Located 30 km from Nairobi in Kenya, Dandora Estate Sewerage Treatment Plant features the largest wastewater stabilisation pond in Africa, treating 80,000 m³ of sewerage per day (80% of Nairobi’s wastewater).

The effluent from the treatment plant, which is discharged into Nairobi River for reuse, currently does not meet required quality standards due to overloading.

In order to improve plant performance and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the Athi Water Works Development Agency (AWWDA) proposed the construction of a new Energy Generating Facility that would utilise methane gas (produced by the stabilisation ponds) to generate power.

Project Impact

Increased sewerage coverage to 1,013,064 people in Nairobi, 416,570 of who live in Nairobi’s informal settlements. More than 72,000 households are expected to have access to sewerage connection through provision of 50 public integrated sanitation blocks in the informal settlements. Improved environmental sanitation hygiene Reduction in level of water borne diseases as a result of improved sanitation. Business opportunities created by the water and sanitation facilities well managed by CBOs
