Andy gave the correct answer and after checking the reference doc you suggested I am convinced that his answer was right. However without this confirmation, I might have chosen one of the other answers, i.e. habitaciones and not inhabitants. Thanks to all.

"hab" stands for "habitacion", (dwelling)


Explanation:
This plant can treat sewage (or grey) water at a rate between 200-250 liters (52-65 gallons) per house per day. Obviously the total capacity depends on the number of houses in the network grid leading to the plant.

250l per inhabitant per day


Explanation:
I suppose it's talking about the treatment plant's functional capacity to process water at the rate of up to 250 litres per inhabitant (of the area of influence or service area)per day.

It's just a suggestion as tere isn't a great deal of context facilitated.
