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.

Decentralised Wastewater Treatment Training Programs: Alumni
