Hi, I am working in ESBR wastewater treatment plant. We are struggling with a issue of Low MLSS, MLVSS in aeration tank and high COD after secondry clarifier.

  • MLSS-700 PPM, MLVSS- 300 PPM
  • Inlet COD 700-800 PPM and after secondry clarifier it is upto 400 ppm.

So, please suggest how to increase our MLSS/MLVSS and reduce COD in our plant.

A study finds out dams and reservoirs diminish diverse benefits offered by healthy rivers.

A little over a third of the world's 246 long rivers remain free-flowing, as per a study by a team of 34 international researchers, including those from McGill University in Canada and World Wildlife Fund India. The study, which assessed the connectivity status of 12 million kilometres of rivers worldwide, found that there are about 2.8 million dams along this stretch.

Can any body help me in solving this? I have a borewell with a depth of 480 ft. Unfortunately, while drilling we encountered mud present at 440 feet along with water. We continued drilling till 480 feet and stopped. Now the concern is at what level the pump should be placed for optimum performance? Also does the water level will improve during rainy seasons?

As India votes this month in the Lok Sabha Elections, WaterAid India takes a look at how water and sanitation are still top of mind for many female voters across the country.

As the world’s largest democracy is all geared for its biggest test - for voters to select their Members of Parliament and the Prime Minister, the top issues that dominate the electoral agenda at the national level have been increased jobs opportunities, controlling inflation, and reducing farmers’ distress. While these could be the top priorities for the rest of India, what dominates the agenda at the local level are every day issues that may seem mundane to many - water and sewage lines.
