Pollution and Hawassa City

Hawassa City Pollution

The pollution levels of effluents from these factories, as measured by the Hawassa City Environmental Protection Agency (HCEPA), were found well above permissible levels. Secondly, as established by HCEPA, the management of the municipal sanitary landfill, which is geo-membrane protected but damaged and yet to be replaced, is being degraded to an open dump posing the risk of links with the ground water systems. Thirdly, among the local businesses, restaurants, hotels and automotive garages used to connect their drains to the lake. Fourthly, the proliferation of irrigation-based production of high value vegetables on the banks of the lake is a source of chemical pollution, which is linked to the use of fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides. Fifthly, the Hawassa Referral Hospital, built on the banks of the lake and generating medical wastes, is one of the direct contributors to the lake’s pollution. This state of affairs has forced the Hawassa City Administration to take some strict environmental measures though HCEPC. All factories were asked to submit their Environmental Audit and Waste Management Plan, while the experts of agency have started visiting the industries regularly to check progress.

 

Hotels are increasingly forced to use their own septic tanks and required to emptying from time to time. The waters of swimming ponds of lakeside resorts, which are treated with chlorine, are banned from being released to the lake. The city administration has recently approved a buffer zone regulation which requires, among other things, certain activities to move away at least 200 meters from the banks of the lake. In addition, in collaboration with the relevant offices and voluntary organizations, HCEPA is promoting watershed rehabilitation activities. These include encouraging farmers to plant perennial crops (e.g., fruit trees) as well as rehabilitating four wet lands of which two are already reclaimed. On-going efforts to rehabilitate the Lake’s ecosystem underline the imperatives of strengthening rural-urban linkages. Looking into the environmental track record of existing industries, one would be tempted to ask: Can Hawassa City sustain more manufacturing expansion given the challenges existing industrial practices pose on the lake’s ecosystem?
