Output 4 – other municipal services within Nukuʻalofa

Within the Project design, other municipal services were to be identified and planned. The priority project selected was the sanitation sub-project, and works commenced at the end of 2015. Sanitation will be improved in Nuku’alofa by:

  1. expanding and upgrading the capacity of WAL’s existing leachate/sewage liquid treatment facilities at Tapuhia;
  2. exploring improvements to the regulatory requirements such as annual certification of onsite household sanitation facilities whilst increasing community awareness of the importance of operating and maintaining environmentally safe household septic systems; and
  3. undertaking pilot construction and upgrading of onsite, household sanitation facilities for low-income, Nukuʻalofa households currently without access to septic tank treatment systems and selected institutional and public facilities.
  4. improving school sanitation facilities and public convenience buildings.
