Term
JITF Aquasource shoulders the business risk as a private operator during the term of operation, which is generally between twenty and thirty years. That term is sufficiently long to allow JITF Aquasource to earn back expenses incurred in project development and operation and management and achieve an appropriate profit. At the end of the operating period, the plant is transferred back to the public-sector partner, either at no cost or for a previously stipulated amount.
