The two wastewater plants in the Township of Morris, New Jersey, USA have experienced significant savings in electricity costs, sludge removal, and chemical usage. Savings result from installation of an effective system to control dissolved oxygen levels in the plant's aerated digestion tanks.

Manufacturers and wastewater municipalities that treat and discharge wastewater are concerned with regulatory compliance and controlling costs. Most facilities must comply with regulations, such as the US Environmental Protection Agency's (USEPA) Clean Water Act, and optimize their wastewater treatment processes.

New Delhi: The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday sought reply from Hindustan Coco-Cola Beverages as to why duty should not be levied on water treated and purified by the company for supply to vendors for producing aerated beverages.

In most developing countries wastewater treatment systems have very low coverage or function poorly, resulting in large-scale water pollution and the use of poor-quality water for crop irrigation, especially in the vicinity of urban centres. This can pose significant risks to public health, particularly where crops are eaten raw.

This project aims to identify the risks and benefits associated with the use of wastewater in urban and peri-urban fodder and vegetable cropping systems in India and Pakistan, where wastewater is largely untreated due to lack of public finance.

This report starts with a description of the methodology followed in the Wastewater Agriculture and Sanitation for Poverty Alleviation (WASPA) in Asia Project, including the overall project approach and some key concepts applied.

This new CPCB study on water consumption and sewage disposal patterns finds that 70% of the total municipal sewage and effluent from over 900 cities and towns are being discharged untreated into rivers, which are a major source of drinking water.
