International Engineer's Training on Decentralised Wastewater Treatment Systems (DEWATSTM)

September 3 - 7, 2018 (9:30 am to 6pm)

Venue:CASS Bangalore



Urbanisation is one of the most important demographic trends of this century. The rapid growth of cities has created a shortfall in the supply of infrastructure and services leading to a deteriorating environment. Today an estimated two billion people in the world do not have access to 'adequate' sanitation facilities.

Indian cities generate 61,754 million litre of sewage per day (MLD) but can treat only 22,963! The disposal of such huge volume of untreated domestic sewage from cities and towns is the biggest source of water pollution and environmental contamination in India.

Most Indian cities try to handle the infrastructure demands through centralised systems, which not only require high capital expenditures but also cause high operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.

The existing centralised systems are not able to serve the increasing demand. As a complementary option to the centralised approach, the introduction of a decentralised waste management system can be an effective solution to tackle pollution in urban areas. Moreover, decentralisation helps to increase community participation in the decision making process, implementation and maintenance.

In this context, there is an increasing need for scaling up decentralised approaches for adequate basic needs services. Decentralised wastewater treatment systems have an enormous potential in contributing to the development of sustainable environmental sanitation. CDD Society aims to address the need for decentralised solutions by enhancing the capacities of service providers across the country.
