The regulations/standards, once they are approved and put into implementation, will contribute to: (1) protect the sewer network, equipment and facilities for drainage, sewerage and wastewater treatment; (2) ensure treatment efficiency and sustainable operation of the wastewater treatment plants; (3) meet the effluent quality after treatment to be discharged into the environment; (4) enable setting up database for rehabilitation, upgrading and expansion of the drainage and sewerage system.

The participants had efficient discussion, shared viewpoints, and contributed valuable comments & recommendations from various perspectives. The compilation group will take these comments in consideration and conduct further study in order to develop regulations with proper group of parameters and values which are feasible for implementation.
