Environmentally Sustainable Sewage Management Strategy- A Case of Jamshedpur, India
With the rapid growth of urbanization and industrialization, the generation of municipal sewage is increasing on a time scale. Presently, there are no treatment facilities available in majority of class 1 and 2 towns in India. Consequently, sewage water is either being discharged into rivers, natural water courses or on low lying lands thereby polluting the water resources and causing various diseases. There exists a strong need to address this problem on a scientific scale with integrated and sustainable approach. An effort has therefore been made by the authors of the present paper to carry the case study of Jamshedpur, India in which population trends along with forecasting is done. Similarly, trends of sewage generation and forecasting on a time scale were done. An attempt has also been made to highlight the waste water treatment methods with focus on the design of Aerated lagoon method to treat the municipal sewage. An approach has been adopted to make it environmentally sustainable.
