Using the treated water for our WWTP

Project: Tashigar Norte Permacultural Project

Posted by Tashigar Norte over 10 years ago

Tashigar Norte village, consisting of about 20 houses, sends its wastewater to one WWTP located in north-eastern sector of the farm. This sub-project aims to provide a use for treated water.

A view of the area

First of all it is important to know that Tashigar Norte was not initially designed from the perspective of permaculture. Then we adapt the systems that we already have in the farm as much we can.

This WWTP works  using mechanical-electric pumps which generate adecuated environments for the bacterias that processed the black water that it have entered in the system through air injection. After the water is filtered and evacuated by another mechanical-electrical pump system. 

Until a few months ago this water was not be used. We are designing a system of channels that will play a role similar to that of the swales. Throughout we will plant ornamental plants and coconut palms (to continue with the process of water purification). We have digging already 50% of the channel and transplanted to the surroundings 20 date palms. We are developing a seedbed of around 50 coconut palms.

We hope to have everything ready to receive the new palms within a month or two.

Like a long-term project we would like to replace the current treatment system for other more sustainable. (fitodepuration)

Legend of Badges

Note: The various badges displayed in people profiles are largely honesty-based self-proclamations by the individuals themselves. There are reporting functions users can use if they know of blatant misrepresentation (for both people and projects). Legitimacy, competency and reputation for all people and projects can be evidenced and/or developed through their providing regular updates on permaculture work they’re involved in, before/after photographs, etc. A spirit of objective nurturing of both people and projects through knowledge/encouragement/inspiration/resource sharing is the aim of the Worldwide Permaculture Network.



A member is a permaculturist who has never taken a PDC course. These cannot become PDC teachers. Members may be novice or highly experienced permaculturists or anywhere in between. Watch their updates for evaluation.

Permaculture Matchmaker

One of these badges will show if you select your gender and the "I'm single, looking for a permaculture partner" option in your profile.



People who claim to have taken a Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course somewhere in the world.


PDC Verified

People who have entered an email address for the teacher of their PDC course, and have had their PDC status verified by that teacher. Watch their updates for evaluation.



People who’ve taken a Permaculture Research Institute PDC somewhere in the world.


PDC Teacher

People who claim to teach some version of PDC somewhere in the world.


PRI Teacher

With the exception of the ‘Member’ who has never taken a PDC, all of the above can apply to become a PRI PDC Teacher. PRI PDC Teachers are those who the PRI recognise, through a vetting board, as determined and competent to teach the full 72-hour course as developed by Permaculture founder Bill Mollison – covering all the topics of The Designers’ Manual as well as possible (i.e. not cherry picking only aspects the teacher feels most interested or competent in). Such teachers also commit to focussing on the design science, and not including subjective spiritual/metaphysical elements. The reason these items are not included in the PDC curriculum is because they are “belief” based. Permaculture Design education concerns itself with teaching good design based on strategies and techniques which are scientifically provable.

PRI PDC Teachers may be given teaching and/or consultancy offerings as they become available as the network grows.
