Northern sewage plant will encompass Camp Schwab

Date Posted: 2009-08-06

A foul smelling sewage plant located near Camp Schwab will soon disappear as Nago City builds a new sewage system in the Toyohara area.

Nago City has announced a policy plan for the new sewage system which will handle waste water from residential and industrial waste areas of Kushi, Toyohara, Henoko and Camp Schwab. Yoshikazu Shimabukuro, Nago City’s mayor, praised the new plant. “Installing this sewage system has been the dream of Nago City citizens, and the hopes of all, butour funds were small.”

The mayor says “we can still operate this system, and we have to do it before the Futenma Air Station transfer facility building construction will be finished in 2014. There has to be the new plant.” Shimabukuro says the new waste treatment facility will be built “inside the Toyohara area, and will include a new park, too.”

The ¥10 billion project will be largely funded by central government subsidies, including money from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism. Nago City Assembly members will meet this month to develop a budget and examine costs. Kushi area residents say “our life environment will move a grade up,” but others warn “this plan is very dangerous because combining the transfer of the military base and local people living together means making a strongly fixed base and building up military strength and power.” The new waste treatment plant will be able to serve about 9,000.
