Design and Mapping of Underground Sewerage Network in GIS, a Case Study of Islampur Town

J. A. Patil | Dr. Mrs. S. S. Kulkarni


Abstract: The infrastructure of a city, mainly the water supply and sewerage system are vital for urbanization, wastewater generated from urban area is a result of domestic and industrial activities, and domestic wastewater contains organic and inorganic matter in suspended, colloidal and dissolved form. The municipal wastewater management is a critical issue in an urban environment. If the municipal wastewater is not properly collected, treated and disposed, the related effects pose serious threat to the environment. Many small cities do not have proper drainage system, Islampur, Dist. Sangli; Maharashtra, India is one such. As on date all the domestic waste water is either send in open drain or in open area around the houses. This is resulting in hygienic problems and to cater for; Municipal Corporation of Islampur town has come up with underground sewage collection plan. This study aim at designing collection system for Islampur town, the work undertaken uses, GIS as a tool for mapping the collection system (primary and secondary) in order to facilitate further works.
