Ajman Sewerage partnered with Moalajah, a joint venture between Besix and Veolia, and the Municipality & Planning Department of Ajman to host the ‘Open Days at the Wastewater Treatment Plant’ programme for school students to teach them about the importance of water sustainability.

Over 300 students visited the utility’s wastewater treatment plant for the programme  conducted under the patronage of Ajman Sewerage’s Community Care Foundation.

The objective is to spread the vision of creating a cleaner and greener environment for present and future generations, said the statement from Ajman Sewerage.

The utility firm last week hosted the pupils from Al Aqsa Private School, Asma Bint Omise School for Secondary Education and Al Rashedia School for Secondary Education as part of their CSR initiative programme to raise awareness of the importance of water, wastewater management and treated water re-use.

They learnt about the available water sources in Ajman, typical household water consumption values, the wastewater treatment process as well as various uses of the final product which is treated water.

The students were also sensitized on the significant role they too can play in the day-to-day uses and water preservation at home and at school by implementing a series of water saving tips.

“These children are going to be tomorrow’s responsible citizens and we feel it is our duty to make them aware of the limited natural resources we have,” stated Christophe Ledur, the utility’s general manager.

“Water preservation is as important as wastewater treatment and therefore this humble initiative is a step in the direction in as far as ensuring that future generations are aware of its importance. We want to instil a culture of accountable water usage among our children as a way of securing their future,” he added.
