A modern and efficient sewerage system is vital for the country, to ensure that waste water is treated before the effluent being discharged into the waterways (eg. Lake, river and sea). Sewage Treatment Plants (STP) is designed to collect, treat and dispose human waste and other wastewaters generated from urban dwellings and commercial facilities. Since the treatment of sewerage is a vital and continuous activity, the sewage treatment plant must be managed and functioned judiciously. Upgrading the existing wastewater treatment plant systems refers to a variety of design and operational technique to improve the performance or increase plant capacity. Thus, the aim of this study is to evaluate the workability and effectiveness of the use of Package Plant System for upgrading the conventional treatment plant in order to meet the standard requirement. This study discussed on the Sewage Treatment Plant in Malaysia and also analysed problems that often face in operating and maintaining the conventional treatment plant. The methodology adopted for this study are through literature to understand the scenario of the existing Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), gathering information and data from questionnaire survey and case studies conducted. The result of the study shows that the upgrading of existing sewage treatment plant is recommended after considering the limitations of the performance of STPs. Apart of that, it is also important to upgrade the performance of STP to maintain their efficiency and reliability.
