October 09, 2019

Prepared for Nagar Palika Parishad Chunar, Mirzapur, UP

Trenching is a method of land application of faecal sludge or septage (FSS) as a controlled disposal method. The site must be carefully selected and the facility must be designed & operated to mitigate & minimise impact on environment and safeguard health & safety of operators & public. Appropriate trees (high Nitrogen demand varieties) can be planted on top of the filled trenches, the trees get benefit from organic matter and nutrients that are released from FSS. The implementation agency should obtain permission from the government authority to implement trenching.
