No information has been provided on mitigative capacity
|Social:||Social co-benefits include: improved public health, reduced odours, reduced incidences of respiratory illness and an increased access to limited water resources.
|Economic:||These include capacity building in the waste water sector, direct jobs created, reduced energy imports which are displaced by the production of biogas from the facility and cost savings from pumping equipment.
Local air quality, reduction in the uses of groundwater and corresponding increase in potable water, a better quality of affluent discharged to surface waters, sludge from organics stream to be used as soil improver/compost and reduced water extraction rates.
