SWWTW Monitoring Committee
The monitoring forum is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the regulations governing gatherings of people and restrictions on potential meeting venues.
The Southern Waste Water Treatment Works (SWWTW) discharge monitoring forum is a platform through which the community, authorities, industry and local environmental groups are able to engage on issues regarding the SWWTW coastal waters discharge permit.
The forum ensures that regular reporting to the stakeholders provides an opportunity for monitoring of the outfall for compliance with the licence or permit, and that adverse impacts and pollution to the receiving environment are avoided and/or minimised within acceptable timeframes to acceptable standards. The forum also provides a platform to inform the authorities of concerns that may be raised during the licence period, and for active positive engagement around the concerns.
*Phelamanga has recently been appointed to facilite the forum meetings and documents currently available have been provided by ZiPEC*
