Reclamation of Treated Unused Water From STP, Putlur

The Urban management project this semester concentrated on the revamping and reclaiming the treated unused from the Sewage treatment plant in Thiruvallur Municipality in Tamil Nadu. The sewage treatment plant which was started from 2014 is treating 5 MLD per day and approximately 1.2 MLD per day of treated water is left in the open ground of near by residential areas and to the catchment area near by. The treated unused water when left to the catchment gets contaminated and causes major issues in the municipality such as ground water contamination, mosquito breeding leading to dengue.
