Recent Trends in Technologies of Sewerage Systems and Sewage Treatment (as per New CPHEEO Manual), 20 – 24 February, 2017


As per Census 2001, 30.66 million urban households which form 35.49% of the urban households suffer from inadequate access to sanitation. According to the Report of the Central Pollution Control Board (2009), the estimated sewage generation from Class - I Cities and Class - II Towns is 38254.82 million liters per day (MLD) out of which only 17787.38 MLD (35%) is being treated and the remaining is disposed of into the water bodies without any treatment, due to which three-fourths of surface water resources are polluted. The Ministry of Urban Development conducted a rating of class I cities on sanitation-related parameters in 2009-10.Out of 423 cities, only four were in the blue category scoring more than 66 points out of 100. No city achieved the distinction of being a green city i.e. a city scoring more than 90 out of 100. According to the Constitution of India, water supply and sanitation is a State subject and the States are vested with the responsibility for planning and implementation of water supply and sanitation schemes including O&M and cost recovery. The 74th amendment envisages transfer of this function to the Urban Local Bodies. However, the Govt. of India supplements the efforts of the States in various ways – sanction of funds for the implementation of projects, technical guidance, capacity building etc. As on date, 111 sewerage schemes at a total estimated cost of Rs. 14,834.14 crores have been sanctioned under the UIG component of JNNURM. 96 sewerage schemes at an estimated cost of Rs. 2862.29 crore have been approved under UIDSSMT component of JNNURM. In recognition of the need for a special focus on sanitation, the National Urban Sanitation Policy was adopted in October 2008 with a focus on elimination of open defecation, integrated city-wide sanitation, proper Operation & Maintenance of all sanitary installations etc. The initiatives under the Policy include rating of cities, awareness generation and support to cities for preparation of city sanitation plans. In 2015, JnNURM was replaced by AMRUT Schemes, which gives importance on “Sewage Systems and Sewage Treatment Plants”. The CPHEEO has brought out a detailed Manual in 2013 on the various aspects of Sewerage & Sewage Treatment.
