This is a podcast about one of Yokohama’s sewage treatment facilities. Nicola and I sit down and talk about some of our take-aways from the tour and discuss Victoria’s sewage treatment (or lack thereof) and the different stances on the hot topic.


This past week we had the opportunity to go to the water and sewage treatment facilities in Tsurumi, Yokohama. It was a place I was very curious to see and took the opportunity to use CITYNET’s connections to request a tour of the Hoboku Wastewater Treatment plant and the Hoboku Sludge Treatment Center. They were very¬†accommodating¬†and even gave their presentations in English, and one of the CITYNET staff members that came with us acted as a translator between us and the facilities staff.

The podcast consists of clips from the tour presentations, our discussion, and a final question asked to the one of the heads of the department about their advice to a city that doesn’t have sewage treatment.
