- Sewage generation in Indian cities has increased rapidly from 58,000 mld in 2016-17 to 72,000 mld in 2021-22. However, the existing collection and treatment infrastructure is inadequate to meet the growing sewage generation. Obsolete sewer lines, dysfunctional treatment plants and a complete absence of user charges for sewerage services continue to adversely impact sewage management in India.
- In the past few years, there have been some visible improvements in sewage management practices at the city level, in terms of projects undertaken, capacity added, and technologies and best practices adopted. Flagship government schemes such as the NamamiGange Mission and the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation have not only increased investments in the sewerage sector but have also encouraged private sector participation.
- A few cities have engaged private entities to improve service delivery and introduce professional and technical expertise in sewage collection and treatment. This has resulted in some noteworthy improvements in operational performance, such as the expansion of sewage collection and treatment infrastructure, use of advanced technologies for sewage treatment, recycle and reuse of domestic sewage for non-potable purposes and the introduction of decentralised sewage treatment. New models such as HAM and one-city-one-operator models have been successfully deployed.
- Further, the use of digital solutions and technology in the management of sewerage infrastructure has increased. Advanced solutions such as SCADA systems, GIS, satellite surveillance and remote sensors are being deployed for monitoring collection and treatment systems.
- Greater attention is being paid to rehabilitation and upgradation of STP capacity, recycling and reuse, and rationalisation of user charges. ULBs are also becoming receptive to the idea of engaging private players for long-term operations and maintenance of sewerage infrastructure.
- Over the next year, investments in the sector, besides the customary focus on asset creation, will be directed towards encouraging sewage recycling and reuse. Growing urbanisation and greater emphasis on achieving 100 per cent sewerage coverage will be the two biggest drivers in the sector. Overall, the sewerage sector has a positive outlook and offers significant opportunities for various industry stakeholders including project developers, technology providers, consultants and equipment suppliers.
- The mission of this conference is to discuss the emerging trends and developments in the sewage treatment segment, highlight the upcoming opportunities and projects, and discuss the issues and challenges. The conference will also showcase the best practices, and emerging technology and equipment solutions.
