Sustainable Wastewater Management: Challenges and Way Forward by Prof. Ligy Philip

Water is one of the world’s most valuable resources which are under constant threat due to climate change and resulting drought, explosive population growth and waste. Consequent to rapid growth in population and increasing water demand, stress on water resources in India is increasing and per capita water availability is reducing day by day. An increase in urban water supply implies an increased wastewater generation. However, it is a major challenge for developing nations like India to meet the growing infrastructural requirements for the management of wastewater.  Presently less than 35 % of the wastewater generated in India is getting treated.  As a result, most of our water bodies including groundwater sources are getting contaminated. To tackle both the wastewater management problem and dealing with water scarcity, a paradigm shift with respect to wastewater is needed.  One need to consider wastewater as a resource than a problem.  This presentation will highlight the present status of wastewater management in India and associated problems. Also various simple and novel technologies that can be employed for effective recycle and reuse of wastewater will be discussed in detail.
