Decentralized Urban Greywater Treatment – the Example of Klosterenga
Centralized sewer systems are costly, mainly due to the high cost of the transportation system (Mork et al. 2000). The interest in decentralized systems is therefore increasing and the USEPA (2000) reports that 39% of all new sewer systems in the US are decentralized and that nearly 50% are located in urban areas. In poor countries sewer systems are often lacking, even in urban areas, and the construction of conventional centralized sewer systems is out of economic reach. In addition to cost, the need for more sustainable resource saving systems has triggered a whole set of new wastewater handling systems based on source separation of wastewater (Jenssen et al. 2004).
