Plan for restoration of polluted river stretches can be executed through two fold concepts. One concept may target for enhancement of river flow through interventions on the water sheds/catchment areas for conservation and recharge of rain water for subsequent releases during lean flow period in a year.

An attempt has been made to study the impact of urban wastewater irrigation on summer paddy productivity, varietal response and soil properties. Paddy and soil samples were collected from selected peri-urban villages of Bhubaneswar, India, from fields receiving contrast irrigation sources (urban wastewater and river water) under similar agro-climatic and socioeconomic conditions. Major plant nutrients content were higher in wastewater irrigated soils, whereas pH was lower. Wastewater irrigation increased grain and straw yield.

Under increasing demand for water, fertilizer and energy, waste and wastewater treatment can be potential options for considerably enhancing not only the supply of these valuable economic assets but also for improving sanitation and ecological conditions.

Jharkhand Waste Water Policy, 2017 is to ensure increase use of recycled water for other purposes apart from drinking, through the provision of appropriate technologies for water recycling and protection of environment.

The “General Guidelines for Water Audit & Water Conservation” have been prepared as conceptual guidelines to cover broadly three main sectors of water use viz. irrigation,

This report shows that improved wastewater management is as much about reducing pollution at the source, as removing contaminants from wastewater flows, reusing reclaimed water and recovering useful by-products

Wastewater is a resource that is too valuable to throw away, especially in an increasingly water-scarce world. Wastewater from large cities is often pumped directly into rivers or seas without treatment, leading to pollution and posing a threat to the health of ecosystems and people.

One third of the 60,000 children, who die globally, due to lack of proper sanitation are from India, something that the National Urban Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM) Policy in India, under the Ministry of Urban Development's aegis, aims to tackle. Only about 62.5 per cent of the wastewater in India is treated before its disposal.

This policy report reviews the current status of waste management in Myanmar and confirms that it remains at a preliminary stage, attributed to challenges at both the national and city levels resulting from a range of technical, social, economic and institutional constraints.

This publication is a guide for government and city planners to identify financing mechanisms as they develop their own wastewater and sanitation projects.
