Discharging untreated faecal sludge (FS), the material accumulating in onsite sanitation systems, into watercourses or land may cause environmental degradation and serious public health risks
Inspired from Mother Nature, a biologically diverse and natural ecosystem in the form of an integrated wetland system is developed for the treatment of wastewater. Natural wetland systems filter pollutants from water that flows through on its way to receiving lakes, streams and oceans.
What is a Wetland? ….As water flows through a wetland; many of the suspended solids become trapped by vegetation. Further, the pollutants are transformed to less soluble forms taken up by plants or become inactive. The appropriate conditions for microorganism growth are fostered by the wetland plants.
A wetland is constructed at site (Constructed wetland) as a wastewater treatment system that uses a synergistic combination of natural processes involving wetland vegetation, soils, microbial life growth to enhance water quality
