Water is a highly precious resource in our island ecosystem. Rainwater is collected from the roofs of the staff accommodation blocks and other back of house buildings, and carefully stored for later use. Drinking water is also created using a desalination plant. This plant removes salt and other impurities from seawater and uses reverse osmosis, microfiltration and nanofiltration to ensure the water is potable. All wastewater is collected and pumped to dedicated treatment areas and all solid waste is sorted and sent for recycling, where possible.
By preserving water our sources and promoting responsible consumption, Bawah Reserve strives to protect the delicate ecosystems of the Anambas Archipelago and ensure its sustainability for generations to come.
