Implementer's Guide to Lime Stabilization for Septage Management in the Philippines


This manual is meant to be helpful for cities as it features a step-by-step procedure for establishing a septage management program using a combination of hydrated lime slurry and sand drying beds as the main treatment process. The manual captures the experience of Tacloban City, Philippines, which employed the system following Typhoon Yolanda to treat septage and sewage collected from evacuation centers and other temporary shelters.

The League of Cities of the Philippines (LCP) and the Philippine Association of Water Districts (PAWD) partnered with the USAID Water Security for Resilient Economic Growth and Stability (Be Secure) Project to produce this manual. The manual supports implementation of the National Sewerage and Septage Management Program (NSSMP).
