► Salient features:
  • The Sambalpur SeTP treats both solid and liquid parts of the septage in an integrated manner. The SeTP is designed to treat the liquid part of the septage using DEWATS technology.
  • This is a gravity flow-based system, where septage collected through cesspool emptier trucks is discharged to the receiving chamber from where it flows to different units by gravity. The technology requires least mechanical and electrical interventions to run the process and is cost effective as compared to other technologies
  • In a historic step, the Operation & Maintenance (O&M) of the SeTP is being handled by Maa Pataneswari Self Help Group (SHG).
