Case Study on 145MLD Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) (SBR Technology) in Gwalior
Alok Gupta | Dr. Anupam Jain
Abstract: Water scarcity and pollution are major environmental challenges faced by many cities in the world. The treatment of waste water was introduced to overcome and find a solution to water scarcity. A key by implementing Sewage Treatment Plant was aimed at treating the wastewater generated by the city and making it suitable for reuse, at least for agricultural purposes. With time there are many technologies to set up an STP. Nowadays, as the land prices of the cities are increasing and the land in the cities is limited, advanced and new STP technologies are introduced that require less space as compared with the older technologies also, with an advanced treatment process called Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR), which has several advantages over conventional activated sludge processes. The SBR technology has been successful in achieving high efficiency of removing 95% of organic matter and suspended solids, and the treated wastewater can be used for industrial and agricultural purposes, reducing the use of freshwater resources for agriculture and gardening purposes. Implementing the STP has also led to the rejuvenation of nearby water bodies, reducing the pollution in rivers and thus maintaining rivers. The success of this project sets an example for other cities to follow and adopt sustainable wastewater management practices.
