1. What is Decentralised wastewater treatment system? Decentralised wastewater tretment system (DWWTS) is an approach consisting of different technologies to provide wastewater treatment solutions for small, individual or cluster type facilities. It is a sustainable method to treat domestic wastewater which is generated from the office campuses, residential societies and institutional premises. 2. Why should I adopt this method?
Decentralised wastewater treatment plant is a site-specific system. The different components of the system settler , anaerobic baffled reactor , planted filter and polishing pond are planned and designed according to the treatment requirement of the wastewater generated. Average water consumption for domestic usage in India is 135 Lpcd. 80% of the water which is used or consumed for domestic purposes comes out as a wastewater. An on-site wastewater treatment plant like DWWT can be installed to treat and recycle this wastewater in order to close the loop.
