Analysis of the Domestic Wastewater and Rainwater Drainage System in the Industrial/ Municipal District of Limete, Kinshasa

In the city of Kinshasa, a large part of the population does not have access to basic sanitation services. This lack of sanitation is reflected in particular by overexposure of the population to various waterborne diseases such as cholera, diarrhea, typhoid fever, malaria and many other opportunistic infections, yet preventable. In short, the urban space of Kinshasa is increasingly exposed to insalubrity, a poor quality of life, which makes it difficult to find sustainable solutions for the population. The problem concern evacuation of rainwater and wastewater which is mainly linked to the deterioration and/ or the non-maintenance of the existing sanitation installations to the insufficiency of these following an uncontrolled urbanization, all aggravated by unorthodox or even non-existent management of solid, liquid and gaseous waste The main cause is a fast expansion of the city without a strict sanitation plan, especially without a sewage system.
