Training Programme on Domestic Wastewater Treatment and Reuse
Date: August 24 - 28, 2010
The water and sewage management in cities will determine the quality of life in urban India. Most cities are today water stressed, unable to cope with the water demand of the growing urban populations and to treat the resulting wastewater.
There is an urgent need to develop the capacity of NGOs, academicians, architects, engineers and environment managers so they understand India’s nightmarish water pollution situation and gain an understanding of various decentralized approaches in treating sewage.
Centre for Science and Environment recognizes this need and has designed a hands-on 5 day training programme on “Domestic Wastewater Treatment and Reuse”. After the programme, the participants shall have exposure and better understanding of:
Urban water management in India and status of sewage generation and treatment in cities
Fundamentals of wastewater treatment
Treatment and reuse of treated wastewater from STPs
Decentralized approaches in treating sewage and economics of DEWATS
New and emerging on site technologies in domestic wastewater treatment: Bioremediation,Ecosanitation,Rootzone treatment system,Water efficient sanitation practices
Economics of decentralized wastewater treatment systems
Planning, designing, implementation and monitoring of localized wastewater treatment systems
Tools: Class room lectures by experts, site visit to model wastewater treatment and reuse projects, practical exercises and presentations by participants, reference materials and film screening. Course Fees: Rs 8,800 for professionals (including builders, architects and engineers). 50% discount for academics, students and NGOs. Please note course fees doesn’t include travel and accommodation. Course Venue: Centre for Science and Environment, 41 Tughlakabad Institutional Area, New Delhi
Last date for applying: August 16, 2010

‘Septage’ is both solid and liquid waste that accumulates in onsite sanitation systems (OSS) e.g. septic tanks. This has three main components – scum, effluent and sludge. It has an offensive odour, appearance and contains significant levels of grease, grit, hair, debris and pathogenic micro organisms. The construction and management of OSS are left largely to ineffective local practices and there is lack of holistic septage management practices.
The Ministry of Urban Development has acknowledged the lack of skilled man power in urban local bodies across India and has therefore developed the ‘Capacity Building Scheme for Urban Local Bodies’ (CBULB). The programme aims to enhance knowledge, skills and attitude of city officials for the mainstreaming of reforms and best management practices (BMPs) of sustainable water and wastewater management through training programmes followed with field exposure visit, seminars and workshops.
