Already about 10 states have formulated and adopted their own water policies, and the rest are in the process of doing so.

    ‘Septage’ is both solid and liquid waste that accumulates in onsite sanitation systems (OSS) e.g. septic tanks. This has three main components – scum, effluent and sludge.
