Sewage water to drinking water

Sewage water to drinking water

Due to the increasing difficulty to find proper drinking water, a new technology has been made. The sewage water treatment plant is designed so that it can treat water in 5 layers. It is capable of producing 66,000 litres of drinking water every day. In order to make more people understand the importance of this concept, the treated water will be sent to government offices.

The water is treated in a decentralized waste water treatment plant in Keshopur. From there it is provided to nearby areas. The pilot project has been launched by Arvind Kejriwal government is known as ‘Sujala Dhara’ and was launched together with nongovernmental organization Sana.

United States of America has already implemented the technology. It can be replicated in India to purify water. The process involves treating water through 5 levels to convert it into a potable state. The plant will run twenty four hours each day manufacturing 4,000 litres of drinking water each hour. Absolute Water has designed the technology.

Bio-filtration nano membrane filtration technology is used in the plant. It will run on solar energy. The plant has potentiality to produce twenty five million litres annually. Raw waste material will be screened then pumped through the biofilter.
