Saibai Island, TSIRC Water and Sanitation Grey water Reply To: Grey water

    Hi Vanessa,

    You can make reasonable assumptions based on the information available. We know that Saibai Island has a population of close to 500 people. Domestic households usually produce 200L to 300L of greywater per day. If you assume 4 people in a domestic household, that is 50L to 75L of greywater produced per person per day. So, the total greywater produced would be somewhere between 25,000 L to 37,500 L.

    Mangroves exist in Saibai, there are no restrictions as such, but I would advise you to take a look at the interactives and observe the wetlands in question. The majority of the mangroves on the island are coastal mangroves, across the sea. Mangroves are of cultural importance to Saibai Islanders and you’d have to make sure you are protecting the mangroves in your design. Hope that helps.
