Scarab Award - World Water Awards - Wastewater Treatment solutions - 2019

Scarab Waste Water Technologies

We are delighted to announce that Scarab Water has received another important award in its quest for international recognition - Best in Wastewater Treatment Solutions - 2021 / 2022. We would like to thank the judges, who recognize our many years of hard work, and to our loyal clients for acknowledging that they have accepted the best wastewater solution , making all this possible. Our mission to become the worldwide leader in sewage treatment design and technology, has just become reality.
With water becoming high profile, it is important that those within this field develop their wastewater treatment products and designs to meet the new urgency, since many products are now outdated and obsolete. We cannot afford another 20 / 30 years to simply re-brand bad into good. Real effort is needed, starting right now.
This award will, hopefully, ignite more initiatives within the whole industry, finding that last ounce of passion, initiative and innovation, to produce more great products, like we did, at Scarab.

Tested and Endorsed

Scarab's very first sewage system was installed in the Drummond / Cato Ridge area in mid 2002, after many years of research and development. The late John Bizzell, an architect, owned the small holding and we requested a trial site.
So impressed with the apparent water quality, Umgeni Water was asked for their opinion, and the water authority performed their own analysis of water samples. This letter confirms what they found.  I thank these water professionals for their efforts.
