It is a group housing project of the government for the economically weaker section and their main occupation is “beedi making”. The housing project is funded under the Vambay scheme. Its objective is to achieve improved sanitation situation in the community.
The sewage streams are conveyed from all houses and collected in a common collection tank near the treatment location. The treatment system consists of settler, ABR and a PGF.
The settler ensures a removal of suspended solids while the ABR further treats suspended and dissolved solids anaerobically. The partially treated water from ABR enters the PGF where it is passed through planted gravel bed. After this the treated water is finally collected in the collection tank.
