Housing societies generate three major types of wastewater viz.
1. From bath rooms --- Bath wastewater …. 40 of total usage
2. From kitchens --- Kitchen wastewater …. 15 % of total usage
3. From Toilets --- Toilet Wastewater …. 40 % of total usage
The fourth usage i.e. vehicle washing and gardening is only about 5 % of total
Possibility of Recycling
It is possible to treat all the above mentioned types of wastewater … even to drinking water standards … either individually or combined.
However, it is found that most of the members of any housing society are readily receptive to idea of treatment and usage of the first type of waste water… that is bath wastewater.
Some members are open to recycling of kitchen wastewater.
And for obvious reasons most members oppose recycling of the toilet wastewater.
Hence at this juncture we are proposing recycling of only bath wastewater in your housing complex. It will be better accepted by the residents and will also be easy to operate and maintain.
