(#8179) STP treated water discharge during monsoon


This is regarding the disposal of STP treated water during monsoon (extra water). Please suggestif it can be used to recharge into the groundwater or not?


Generally recharging treated STP water is not considered a good option due to the malpractices followed in India. However, for recharging tertiary treated STP water,, natural percolation ponds (not pits) if designed considering various parameters to make sure that contamination of groundwater is kept in check can be implemented.
