Wastewater Treatment Cost

Decentralised wastewater treatment systems

With the increasing urban population, there is a tremendous stress on basic amenities like water and sanitation. Sustainable wastewater management calls for a system where wastewater is regarded as a resource which can be recycled and reused. Both communities and watersheds require an integrated approach which is affordable, adaptable and responsive to local needs.

Cost estimation for planning and designing of decentralised wastewater treatment system

Decentralised wastewater treatment plant is a site-specific system. The different components of the system  settler , anaerobic baffled reactor , planted filter and polishing pond are planned and designed according to the treatment requirement of the wastewater generated. Average water consumption for domestic usage in India is 135 Lpcd.  80% of the water which is used or consumed for domestic purposes comes out as a wastewater. An on-site wastewater treatment plant like DWWT can be installed to treat and recycle this wastewater in order to close the loop.
