Exploring Feasibility of Natural and Point of Use System for Sewage Treatment

Nikhil Bhola

Abstract: This study presents an innovative approach to address the sewage treatment problem in Delhi, India, by combining natural and Point of Use PoU systems. The research focuses on the design and efficiency of a three-member series of waste stabilization ponds, which demonstrate a 97.45 efficiency in Biological Oxygen Demand BOD removal. The study also proposes the use of a Point of Use technology to further improve the quality of the effluent, making it suitable for human consumption and other uses. The proposed system is compared with the Rajokri Lake project, a government initiative for sewage treatment. The findings suggest that the proposed system outperforms the Rajokri Lake project in all effluent characteristics. However, the practical feasibility of the system is yet to be tested. The study concludes that if proven feasible, this system could be adopted on a large scale in areas lacking sewage systems, despite the potential drawback of requiring a significant amount of space.
