Waste Water Management


Investment will aim at improving the environmental quality of urban areas and receiving water bodies with a consequent impact on the public health. Improvements are targeted, by end of 2016, at providing collection and treatment of sewage by appropriate technology and extending service coverage to an average of 60 percent of the population. The larger towns will have coverage of 50-90 percent population and medium size towns with 30-50 percent population coverage. In smaller towns, generally onsite sanitation improvements will be undertaken. The sewer networks will mostly cover the town core area. In the outskirts, where extending such facility will not be economical due to scattered habitation or geographical constraints, onsite sanitation will be provided. The technology options will follow the particular geographical and climatic features of the town as well as quantum of possible generation of sewage load. Investments will be accompanied by public awareness and capacity building to ensure system sustainability.
