Samenvatting

The city Matagalpa is located in the central highlands of Nicaragua. Different water related activities upstream from Matagalpa result in a lower quality and quantity of water disposable for the city. These problems present themselves in a drinking water shortage for the inhabitants of Matagalpa. One of the most important economical activities in the area is the coffee production. In a previous research the coffee production and processing on coffee plantations (finca's) has been identified as one of the major contributors to the water quality and quantity problems.
To improve the drinking water situation and also reduce the environmental impact of coffee production a sufficient wastewater treatment is necessary at the coffee finca's.
To provide coffee finca's with a suitable wastewater treatment system two aspects of eco-engineered wastewater treatment systems are discussed in this report. First of all the technical suitability of an eco-engineered wastewater treatment system has been studied by developing a guideline for the design of such a system to treat coffee wastewater.
For a successful implementation of a wastewater treatment system in a developing country also the economical side of the treatment system is important. A wastewater treatment system can only be implemented successfully if the system fits well within the resource management of a finca. For this reason an economical analysis of the treatment system design has been made.
