    Rainbow Drive STP

    Status: Complete - Successful

    Operating Status:

    The residents of rainbow drive had a unique, self-imposed type of sewage treatment plant, functional for 10 years. The process was largely natural based; the sewage was run under the roots of various flowering plants and harmful minerals are absorbed through the roots in a strictly confined bed. The flowers made the STP visually attractive, while underneath the soil the plants were doing their work. The water was then collected and put through secondary treatment processes. The finished product water samples were clean enough to use for gardens, toilets, etc.

    STP visit

    Status: Complete - Successful

    Operating Status:

    We visited 2 different communities,Rainbow Drive and Lake Shore Homes where they both had their own unique way to control their sewage .We initially visited Rainbow Drive-They had segregated the sewage into wet and dry which made it easier for the process of adding chemicals ,which cleaned the sludge and they use the same water to water the plants and they had grown well showing us that the water was indeed cleaned and used .Lake Shore Homes-The method was the same but they used it for bathing and other sanitary uses.All in all ,us students of Inventure Acedemy learnt that in a few 25 years if we dont start saving water we might find ourselves fighting for water .This trip also taught us to be a CITIZEN and not a SHITIZEN!!

    Rainbow Drive STP

    Status: Complete - Successful

    Operating Status:

    Rainbow Drive's STP was completely functional as has been for over 10 years. They had several processes that re-ensured the quality of water was okay to be reused by people to wash cars, garden, clean etc. The first step of their STP was under a flower bed of flowers that made it look beautiful as well, you would have never guessed what was underneath. They had a very systematic and organised way of cleaning the water so that there were no cracks or spills. It all ended up in one big, mint green tank, where the final cleaning takes place.
