The majority of floating residences in the rural communities and cities of the Amazon do not have any kind of sanitation technology, resulting in daily impacts on the Environment and on the health of the residents in these areas.

The overall objective of this project was to create a sewage treatment model that could work as a solution to the sanitation deficit of the floating residences. Furthermore the findings of the project could be transferred to other Floating residences with similar challenges.

The black water treatment system is installed at the Uakari Lodge, which is a community-based enterprise where local residents work as employees and managers. This Business is located in the Mamirauá Sustainable Development Reserve (Mamirauá Reserve), which is a conservation area in Brazil. The key environmental feature of this area is the notable hydrological cycle, which leads to an annual water level variation of up to 10 metres. This significant variation is reflected in the way of life of communities in the area.
