Wastewater management issues in communities:
Current wastewater management practices in a vast majority of residential societies and gated communities are not sustainable. Wastage of precious water continues to be is a major issue. Simultaneously, for many, non-availability of water is an equally big concern. While awareness is spreading rapidly, more needs to be accomplished. We need to deeply understand the process of creating a sustainable water cycle. Residential societies and gated communities must be responsible in their management of water.
Importance of Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in gated communities:
STPs are a safe and an effective way to treat wastewater and generate recycled water. A STP can make a community self-sufficient in water. A STP ensures
- The community has adequate supply of recycled water at all times.
- Recycled water is available for activities like gardening, washing vehicles, toilet flushing, etc.
- Wastewater does not become a health hazard for the residents.
- Reduction in overall water consumption and a high return on investment for the community
- Restoration of groundwater, prevents water degradation and is environmentally friendly
How can STPs help?
While addressing the overall challenge of water management and conservation, recycled water stands as one of the most optimal solution. However, a vast majority of residential societies and gated communities do not have appropriate sewage treatment plant in place, to support the same. A Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) is an important structure that will not just support the treatment of residential sewage waste, but also ensure a sustainable method for producing recycled water and compost.
