BHB is leading the way with the new sewage treatment plant, showing what can and should be done to help better manage Bermuda´s waste. News that the facility will be fully functional by September, treating all waste produced at KEMH to a tertiary level, was welcomed by both the Health Minister and those in the tourism industry.

The system on the grounds of the new Acute Care Wing, was switched on, on Monday 31 March. It is currently only operating at the pre-primary level – screening out inorganic waste in the process indicated by the red lines in the diagram.
