Re: Policy and Practice Forum 2023 Discussion Series

I fully agree with the summing of the huge discussion by Sh Kapur (CSE) among the Sewerage/FSM Experts that we need to have the best of the following solution: -
1--For cities more than 10 lac ultimate design population (considering 30 years as design period), central sewerage system is ruled out unless and until our focus is augmentation of WWTP capacity including its rehabilitation and modification in treatment process to the extent possible. 
As for connecting the additional pockets to the existing sewer network, provisioning of additional STP /DEWATS is the solution.

To my mind de-centralized sewerage system is best solution keeping in mind the huge O & M cost of maintaining the Sewage Pumping Stations.
2--For small towns /cities with ultimate design population less than 1 lac which do not have ant WWTP. Presuming that all households except the slums/very poor households have working septic tanks with or without secondary treatment units (soakage well/soakage pit) --provision of FSTP with a proper coordinated system in place for collection of septage from each household periodically and its disposal only into the FSTP is the ideal solution. This can be executed over a period 9-12 months. 

Further I hope we all agree that an FSTP of this size would be affordable including CAPEX & OPEX (to be arranged by ULB/small town).

That's all from my side.

Thanking you all.
