Apart from open defecation and lack of sanitation facilities in urban and rural areas; the management of septage has been largely neglected and is not a priority due to the lack of awareness of its heavy contribution to environmental degradation, poor sanitation and ill-effects to health. “Septage” is the waste that accumulates in onsite sanitation systems (OSS e.g.

  •  Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is an important tool to inform decision- makers, regulators and stakeholders, about the possible environmental, social and economic costs of the proposed project.

  • The increase in urbanisation has led to increase in the fresh water demand along with wastewater generation. The current water crisis is attributed to mismanagement of water resources and emphasis on the energy as well as resource intensive centralised urban water management. Need is, for the practitioners and user communities, to implement sustainable and affordable decentralised water management practices. This short term five day course will focus on – designing rainwater harvesting (RWH) and decentralised wastewater treatment (DWWT) systems including local reuse.
