International Training Course on “Planning, Design and Implementation of Water Supply, Sewage Treatment & Municipal Wastes Disposal Systems, 08th -11th May, 2017

In most of the communities, be it urban, semi-urban or rural, the municipalities are falling short of providing adequate supply of water, treating sewage and processing and disposing the solid waste generated. There is a pressure from government as well as public side to provide better basic facilities for water supply and sanitation. The present training course is an effort in this direction. It starts with self-assessment  of  present  needs  and  the  status  of  present  environmental  infrastructure.  Then, requirements are planned in the form of facilities to be constructed or upgraded. Next, all units are designed  and basic  drawings  and calculations  are  done. The actual construction  takes time and adequate budget for implementation. Finally, once commissioned proper schedule of daily operations and preventative maintenance is compulsory for long and satisfactory services of built structures.
