Advanced Residential Training Programme on Decentralised Wastewater Treatment and Local Reuse

Registration Closed

School of Water and Waste (Urban Water Team) successfully organized an Advanced Residential Training Programme on Decentralised Wastewater Treatment and Local Reuse at #AAETI from 21-23 December, 2022. This training was held in collaboration with National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) under CSE-NMCG 3 years duration initiative of making Ganga basin cities water sensitive.We had a total of 31 participants (majorly govt officials from municipalities and Jal Nigam) from different states like - Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Uttarakhand, Delhi, Bihar etc.

The participants arrived at CSE head office a day before on 20th December and explored green features incl. 8 KLD DWWT system and RWH system implemented at CSE campus. After that we have departed from Delhi to AAETI for the further sessions.

The day 1 of the training started with a room mapping exercise followed by a context setting session by the training director Mr. Depinder Singh Kapur. The day was majorly focused on the contextualization of wastewater, different approaches to manage wastewater, conveyance mechanisms in decentralised approach, technological options, reuse aspects and regulatory frameworks, laboratory aspects including sampling and testing protocols followed by a visit to FSM/EML laboratory at AAETI. Apart from the sessions, participants performed a debatable exercise on how decentralise approach is better than centralise approach and what could be the advantages and disadvantages of the same. Later evening, a self paced cultural programme with Chaat Party was organised by the AAETI management.

On second day we started with planning and designing aspects of DWWT systems followed by a session on implementation, O&M and monitoring of DWWTs projects at different scales. We have also invited an external resource person Mr. Dhawal Patil, Founder Director of Saniverse Environmantal Solutions. He delivered a detailed session on wastewater management in flowing drains and waterbodies management. The second half of the day 2 covered a hands-on 'DIY' exercise on planning and designing a DWWT system for different cases like - institutional building, residential township and nullah treatment. As an outcome of the final exercise, participants presented their planning aspects and detailed calculations. We have also given prizes to the best group of the final exercise as well as few prizes in different categories to encourage the participants.

On day 3 early morning we have departed from AAETI to Delhi for the field visit at Khichdipur (East Delhi) where participants got opportunity to explore nature based (DRDO bio-digester and reedbed based) as well as packaged wastewater treatment systems (NewGenerator and Reclaimer) treating wastewater coming from a 80 seater toilet complex.

We have received 360 degree good feedback from participants in terms of content, methodology, organization of the training, time management, field visit, co-curricular activities etc.
