Re: Co-treatment of Faecal Sludge and Septage in Bijnor city spreading its essence in other states

Thank you for the appreciation Bhitush Sir. It all started with your guidance and hard work that was put into the city in the initial days.
However regarding your hopes on points 1, 2 3, and 4 here are some updates:
1. The ULB has ties with nearby village local bodies and town local bodies in the form of MoU, which is also linked to national missions like SBM.
2.  Currently schedule desludging is a challenge for the city. However, we are planning to study the possibilities of initiating the Schedule Desludging pilot process in the wards which are adjacent to the STP.
3. The Bijnor Municipality has recently won a Performance Based Incentive Grant(PBIG) from the WorldBank based on the plan sent to implement a Household Sewer Connection and reuse of treated water from the plant. The implementation of the project will be seen on the ground in the coming days.
4. A pilot decentralized wastewater treatment system is already under construction in the Bijnor Municipality premises. The ULB is trying to inspire such projects in the outskirts by taking experience from the pilot project on its premises.

Thank you.

Thanks to the technical support provided by CSE team, Bijnor has implemented some good initiatives.

Hope 1) the treatment facility allows the FS from nearby villages, bringing in rural urban convergence; 2) the city is seriously thinking of implementing scheduled desludging; 3) the local body is going to provide household connections to the existing sewerage network in the core city; 4) the city is planning to implement decentralised used water management systems for the establishments situated in the outskirts of the city to showcase some more examples of good initiatives taken up by the local body towards safely managed excreta management.

Co-treatment of Faecal Sludge and Septage in Bijnor city spreading its essence in other states

A delegation from SBM (Grameen) and UNICEF from Rajasthan state recently conducted an exposure cum research visit to Bijnor city to gain insights into the practice of co-treatment of Faecal Sludge and Septage. The visit was made possible thanks to the efforts of Smt. Usha Sharma, Chief Secretary, Government of Rajasthan, who recognized the importance of understanding how co-treatment is being embraced in Bijnor and how private players are engaged in the process.
During the visit, the officials engaged in meaningful discussions with local stakeholders, keenly identifying the issues and challenges faced in creating an enabling environment for FSSM in the city. The team also commended on maintenance and operations of both the STP and Co-treatment Unit.
In addition to these observations, the officials also visited the model-containment site promoted by ULB and CSE to train local masons on ideal septic tanks and twin pit designs, followed by the re-use process for dried FSS. This visit has provided valuable insights into how co-treatment is being embraced in Bijnor and will undoubtedly inform future efforts to promote sustainable waste management practices in the region.
Rajasthan's SBM is taking proactive steps to replicate and implement similar co-treatment practices in the near future. The focus will be on targeting the FSS generated in the nearby villages within a 10-15 km radius of the STPs for treatment. This forward-thinking approach will go a long way in promoting sustainable waste management practices and ensuring cleaner and healthier living conditions for the people of Rajasthan. The SBM's commitment to replicating successful models of waste management such as co-treatment is commendable, and their efforts will undoubtedly serve as a valuable reference point for other regions seeking to adopt sustainable waste management practices.
