In late 2009, Gurney Environmental Ltd. completed the installation of an internationally tendered, World Bank funded project to address wastewater processing issues in the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia. The 2.5 million population city’s infrastructure is under stress due to significant population growth. The wastewater treatment plant (wwtp) had been in an overloaded condition resulting in low rates of processing, sludge accumulation and odour issues. The operations company, SAGUAPAC, owns and operates the wwtp, which is located in a northern suburb of the city.
