The newest central business and lifestyle district south of Metro Manila in the Philippines is getting an upgrade! Organica Water has been awarded a 10.5 MLD Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) for a private property, ARCA South, in Taguig City, Metro Manila of The Philippines. The WWTP will be executed in two phases of 5.25 MLD each, with phase one of the project targeted to begin commissioning in early 2020.
Through the government’s infrastructure program, accessibility and sustainable living remain the key advantages of ARCA South. Organica Water facilities uniquely integrate into the “green space” of any community or area they’re placed into, leading to lower carbon footprints and infrastructure costs. As part of the development of ARCA South, a full 40% of the available land is being set aside for green space in a 30-60-meter-wide “green corridor”. Two main factors that led the developer to choose Organica Water’s solution to treat the wastewater of ARCA South were enhancing the local neighborhood to become an environmental atmosphere and including a solution in sync with the green corridor. Organica Water projects demonstrate the importance for developers, such as for Ayala Land in this case, to demonstrate and educate their communities on sustainable wastewater management and it is with the stride that this facility placed at ARCA South will provide the educations benefits.
In addition to ARCA South, Organica Water just signed its maiden contract to treat 2,000 m3/d of wastewater in The Island of Gods, Bali. This wastewater reclamation facility will provide services to a private resort and golf course, the epitome of luxury living in this area. Located at Bali’s southernmost point, Bukit Pandawa, encompasses over 150 hectares and includes a beautiful clifftop with an 18-hole course (opened since 2016), ultra-luxury hotel brands such as Mandarin Oriental and Swissotel, as well as 90 private villas developed by Mandarin Oriental and managed by PT Bali Ragawisata.
This unprecedented landscape offers unparalleled sea views for guests and this newly integrated WWTP will only add to the aesthetic of the grounds. Guests can expect to see this botanical garden-like facility in October 2019, as it’s targeted to be completed and commissioned by that time. Treated wastewater will be reused for landscaping purposes as a commitment by the developer towards better sustainable practices. Organica Water is proud to announce this project win and to have such an increased presence in such a gorgeous location, such as Bali.
These two achievements emphasize the significance of Organica Water’s solution, which offers immense value to real estate developers by preserving the land value surrounding the innovative wastewater reclamation facilities.
