Abstract—This research was aimed to develop the prototype
wastewater treatment technologies to conserve natural
resources and environment of local community. The results
revealed about the production problems and their impacts on
the environment. The community houses had a massively impact
on the environment and surrounding community that happened
as follows. 1) The issue of chemical residues in water 2) The
health issues were directly caused by conventional treatment
processes. In addition, the results before and after the sewage
were found as followings. (1) The pH before was 9.50 and after
treatments of wastewater was 8.30. (2) BOD Before treatment
with 110 mg/L, and after wastewater was 17.60 mg/L. (3) COD
Before treatment with 629 mg/L, and untreated sewage was
100.64 mg/L . 4) Lead before treatment with the 0.32 mg/L , and
the untreated wastewater was 0.13 mg/L. (5) Mercury before
treatment with 0.0005 mg/L, and the untreated wastewater was
Index Terms—Technology development, wastewater treatment prototype, natural resource and environment.
