Abstract: The St. Kizito Hospital in Matany, located in the centre of Karamoja district in Northern Uganda, is a private institution which covers the function of a District Hospital since the 1970’s. Drinking and irrigation water is supplied from two boreholes and a daily volume of app. 20 m³ of wastewater is produced. Originally this wastewater was treated in an overloaded pond system which served the local population partly for watering animals before infiltration. This dangerous and unsatisfying situation together with the water scarcity - last years total annual rainfall of 625 mm lies well within the average annual rainfall (United Nations, 1989) but is unequally timely distributed - and the desire to enable reuse of the wastewater formed the bases of the described project.
