August 20, 2009

Wastewater treatment facilities cooperative development projects (here after referred to as "cooperative project") is a project system that accredits municipalities in which water quality control in the public water district will be more promoted, and executes the development of wastewater treatment facilities, such as sewerage, agricultural effluent treatment facilities, johkasoh, community wastewater treatment plants etc., based on the cooperative development project plan intensively drawn up by municipalities over five years.

The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, the Ministry of Land, Transportation and Infrastructure and the Ministry of the Environment (referred to as the "three Ministries") have executed cooperative projects since FY1997, have accredited 50 municipalities, and is developing effective and efficient wastewater treatment facilities by making the most of the characteristics of the wastewater treatment facilities in each municipality.

In order to proceed with the information disclosure of the cooperative project, the three ministries publish on the development status of wastewater treatment facilities and the status of effluent quality, and they have decided to summarize and publish the data on four municipalities which have completed their cooperative projects by FY2008 (accredited in FY2004) and two municipalities (accredited in FY2006) which have an interim year for cooperative projects in FY2008.
