Action plan for usage of treated waste water from sewage treatment plants

The Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) on April 24, 2019, has initiated suggestive actions for the formulation of action plan for usage of treated waste water from sewage treatment plants. Those are: Estimate Present and Projected Sewage Generation and Treatment Capacity; Identify bulk users of Water: Industrial Clusters, Metro Rail, Indian Railways, Infrastructure Projects, Agriculture, Bus Depots and PWD; Quantify their potential Water Demand; Development of Dead Water Aquatic Sources (Lake, Pond etc); Timeline for establishing such infrastructure (Treatment, Conveyance and Utilization of Treated Sewage); To promote use of treated waste water for various usage; To promote supply of treated sewage to industrial clusters; Industrial clusters can set up treatment facility to meet their raw water requirement instead of drawing groundwater; and Maximizing re-use of treated waste water will minimize groundwater abstraction.
