Assessment of Wastewater Treatment Facilities and Excess Sludge Handling Practices in the Federated States of Micronesia

A survey of wastewater treatment methods in the Federated States of Micronesia revealed a lack of functional treatment systems and conditions that could lead to adverse environmental impacts and public health concerns. Due to a lack of operable equipment, operators do not know the amount or composition of the wastewater entering their plants and in at least one case raw sewage is being discharged directly into the ocean. In addition, waste excess sludge is often taken and used by local residents without adequate prior treatment. Comparisons of methods being used and problems encountered at different locations in the islands will provide valuable information needed by decision makers to develop sustainable treatment practices throughout Micronesia.
