Hello,

For a 1800 capacity sports stadium,  a 200 KLD STP, based on MBBR technology has been recommended. However, since that many number of spectators will be far between and only 3-5 skeleton staff shall be posted throughout the year, the continuous supply of raw sewage is not possible. Can a MBBR plant, designed for 200 KLD, perform with 15-20 KLD of sewage? If not, please advise any other technology.

Hi,

I was looking for advice on purchasing a water purifier for my apartment. I have just moved with my family to Kolkata where the TDS level of the municipal water supplied by the corporation is 170 .

Navigation on the Ganga - how was it in the past, what is the situation currently and what does the future hold?

Spending a week on a cramped boat with five strangers may not sound like fun to many but it was a dream come true for me. When I found a note in my inbox that said ”I want to travel down part of the Ganga by boat. Would you know of anyone who is interested”? , I jumped at the chance and set off on an unforgettable journey with five others. We travelled on a little rowboat that was about 20 feet long, cooked our meals in it, and camped at night. Truly unforgettable.
