MUBAS final year students in Civil Engineering (Water) visited Kauma Wastewater Treatment Plant in Lilongwe on Saturday, 30th September 2022. The aim of the visit was to appreciate the Kauma wastewater treatment and understand how the stabilization ponds are used as a method of treating wastewater.

One of the sixteen students who travelled to Lilongwe for the tour, Anita Ndalama, said they have benefited a lot from the visit which had accorded them an opportunity to have hands-on practical design calculations which cemented what they had learnt in class. The visit also enhanced their understanding of how the wastewater stabilization ponds functions.

The wastewater being managed at Kauma was coming from residences, institutions, commercial buildings and industries including ground water and storm water that flows through the wastewater collection system.

The students were led by their lecturer associate Professor Theresa Mkandawire, who applauded the good relationship existing between MUBAS and industry thereby allowing students to have such practical experience of their lessons.
