ABSTRACT

 

The process of rampant urbanization, substantial increase in population etc has exerted tremendous pressure on all natural resources in general on water. Grey water treatment and its reuse is becoming more exigent with the increase in demand for fresh water in the urban areas. This work is to quantify the total amount of grey water generated in study area and to locate suitable sites for its treatment using GIS. A simple design suitable for grey water reuse is also proposed. By using this technique we have achieved 60-70% treatment efficiency. This being a pilot study in particular area, the results can be data based and simulated for water management in larger township.
