The treatment of sewerage is essential to check the decay in the environment as well as to provide hygienic conditions for the population The sewerage is estimated at the rate of 80% of the water supply in any area. The newly developed areas shall be considered for the provision of community level septic tanks based on economic & environmental considerations. The squatter settlements may be provided with a facility of 1 toilet for 4 to 5 families based on the concept of low cost and low water consumption

The drainage system for any city/town is governed mainly by natural course and topography. The discharge is calculated that guides the requirements for provision of additional drain as well as upgradation of existing drains.

According to Master plan of Delhi power supply consumption works out to be about 2 KW per household at the city level and includes domestic, commercial , industrial and other requirements. The provision of 1 electric sub station of 11 KV for a population of 15,000 is recommended for towns/ cities.


The insufficient conservancy services in most of the urban centres tend to leave the garbage spread on the road sides or open spaces leading to unhygienic conditions. The garbage is removed by the municipal bodies and dumped at the sanitary landfill or in some cases it is converted to compost esp. in small towns. The generation of waste varies from about over a quarter of Kg in small towns to about half a kg per capita in large and metro cities.
