There is need for the building of modern wastewater treatment facilities in the cities as a result of rapid urbanization. Installations for treating and recycling industrial and sewage wastewater are in demand as this will impact the environment positively and prevent contamination of both surface and groundwater.

As a result of the collapse of public water supply system in Lagos and other major cities around Nigeria, there is the need for private sector initiatives in building and providing water to captive communities using the PPP model.

Take Lagos for example, the prime locations such as Lekki, Victoria Island, Ikoyi etc suffer from high saline content in both surface and groundwater because they are mostly situated on land reclaimed from the ocean.
