Waste Water Management: Inaction No Longer an Option
Abstract: I had an opportunity to visit Waste Water Treatment and was fortunate enough to witness the unfortunate condition of a Waste Water Treatment Plant in Jalandhar which discharges half of its sewage as untreated. Another example would be a local slaughterhouse in Pathankot without an operative Treatment Plant; one of worst kept secrets, as a matter of fact. All this time, while building indoor toilets has been at the governments forefront, the actual treatment succeeding this noble cause is yet to be thrown adequate light upon. The country has less than 30 percent installed capacity to treat its household waste water. With the population ever increasing and in the wake of industrialisation, the problem pushes the Indian community on the brink of a catastrophe.
