Improving rural wastewater management.

Improved sanitation and hygiene through proper wastewater management is critical for sustainable growth of rural communities. Traditional wastewater treatment technologies experience low penetration in the resource-poor semi-arid tropical villages with limited or no access to good quality electricity and skilled supervision. The substandard wastewater treatment efficiencies of traditional effluent treatment plants, even in the urban centres, are testimony of their unviability in rural India. Constructed wetland (CW) is an age-old, low-cost, decentralized wastewater treatment technology. The absence of heavy metal and other xenobiotics in rural grey water highlights their reuse potential for growing jute, flower, teak plantation, etc. Lack of field-scale study with real wastewater thus far has made policy makers and professionals working in the sanitation sector sceptic about the long-term reliability of CWs with respect to wastewater treatment efficiencies. This chapter is an attempt to present the potential and real-life challenges of CW implementation.
