Accumulated fecal sludge in Septic tanks and Pit Latrines represents a massive sludge waste management challenge. The employment of Manual Scavengers and Construction of Dry Latrines (Prohibition) Act 1993 prevents the removal of human waste by human hands. Faecal sludge comprises both the liquid and semi-liquid contents that collect in septic tanks. Such wastewater sludge is usually highly concentrated in suspended and dissolved solids, which can be several times more than typical wastewater. When dumped on open surfaces it creates faecal film that impairs public health and causes pollution. A cost-effective strategy for controlling negative health impact. As per National Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (NFSSM) Policy 2017. Wastewater sludge disposal by desludging of the onsite sanitation systems as prescribed by Central Public Health and Environmental Engineering Organisation (CPHEEO) shall be provided by the municipal corporation/private players. Vacuum tankers do emptying trips every day to the sewage sludge treatment plant, wherein wastewater sludge processing happens by recovering the resources. One truck can service a population of 20,000. Payback within a year. Recycled water is used in Agriculture/Horticulture/Gardening and the wastewater treatment sludge is converted to rich organic fertilizer by TALLBOY composting. rejuWATER® FSTP is a low cost and simple fecal sludge treatment technology an initiative from RITEWAYS towards fecal sludge management. rejuWATER® feacal sludge treatment plant helps urban residents and authorities resolve the challenges of indiscriminate and unregulated drainage of faecal sludge in drains, canals and open spaces.
