Sewage and Fecal Sludge Treatment in Tiruchirappalli : Current Status, Proposed Plans and Recommendations for Improvement

TNUSSP | December 2017


An assessment of the coverage of sewerage network and the effectiveness of the Panjapur Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in Tiruchirappalli for safe treatment and disposal of sewage and fecal sludge for existing and future loads was carried out. The implications of the proposed extension of the sewer network were studied, with respect to the existing and proposed sewage treatment facilities. Institutional arrangements for operation and maintenance of the network, decanting stations and STP were also studied. This report presents the findings of the assessment along with an action plan, outlining clear prioritisation, based on cost benefit analysis.
