I. PROJECT BACKGROUND

As a pioneer in real estate development, Ayala Land was a private sector player to construct
large-scale wastewater treatment plants in the Philippines. Company set up the Magallanes
sewerage plant in Makati in the 1960s to process wastewater generated from around 700
hectares of residential and commercial developments in Makati. Sewage treatment plants in
Magallanes and Alabang have subsequently been taken over and expanded by water utility
companies in the early 2000s, when the Philippine government mobilized its water utilities
privatization program.
Ayala Land complies with the national law (Philippine Water Code) and local policies regulating
water extraction and utilization. Their developments utilize water district suppliers such as Manila
Water and Maynilad if they operate in the project sites. For properties outside of their coverage
area, Ayala Land coordinates with the local water district suppliers to lessen and ultimately
eliminate the use of deep well or groundwater.

SITE LOCATION

Dela Rosa Carpark, Dela Rosa Street, Legaspi Village, Makati City

II. PROJECT OBJECTIVES


The overall aim of the project was the use of technology for commercial and/or industrial
wastewater treatment. An important objective of the project was the evaluation of the
effectiveness and the cost-benefit ratio of the general process itself.

III. ELEMENTS OF THE TREATMENT PROCESS

1.) Holding Tank, HT


- The kitchen waste will go through this tank first. The tank's purpose is to hold the wastewater
temporarily. When the holding tank is filled, the water is automatically transferred to the
equalization tank. There is an oil inceptor inside the holding tank that serves as the final line of
defense against fats, oil and grease.

2.) Equalization Tank, ET


- In this tank the wastewater, the wastewater receives its pre-aeration (Blower 1). Wastewater
from the holding tank is aerated 30 minutes every 30 minutes until the equalization tank reached
high level. When the tank, reaches high level, the submersible pump (Pump 1) inside the
transferring until the tank reaches low level

3.) Aeration Tank


- Aeration Tank is the heart of the treatment plant. This is where the sludge is developed and
maintained. From the equalization tanks, wastewater is transferred to Aeration Tank. It is then
aerated (Blower 2) for 2-4 straight hours then settled for 2 hours. The settling is done to
separate the supernatant or the clear water from the sludge. After settling, a decanter pump
(Pump 2) will transfer the water to the filler tank where the final process takes place
4.) Filtration, F
- This is the last process of the treatment. The process reduces the suspended solids in the
water. It is necessary to clean the filter tank by backwashing once a week.

5.) Sampling Point, SP


-This is where the samples are taken. The discharge time is approximately 4-6 hours and 30
minutes from the start of aeration at Aeration Tank.

6.) Bacteria Dosing


- A 100g pack of bacteria is diluted in a pail of water from equalization tank for 20 minutes
(preferable every Thursday when Equalization tank is on low level). The solution is then poured
to the Equalization Tank.)

7.) MLSS Reading


- Do this when there is a process. Please refer to Annex B for the procedure on how to check
sludge levels,
