Sewage generation in urban areas has increased from 62,000 million litres per day (mld) in 2015 to 71,000 mld in 2019. At present, only 30 per cent of the wastewater generated in the country is treated, offering tremendous potential for wastewater recycling and reuse. Over the past few years, there has been an increasing focus on developing alternative sources of water supply through practices such as recycling and reuse of treated wastewater. Municipal agencies in Delhi, Surat, Bengaluru and Nagpur are successfully using recycled wastewater for non-potable uses. Also, recycled wastewater is being used for industrial and agricultural consumption. Strict regulations and guidelines have been formulated to restrict the use of freshwater. Also, these projects and initiatives have been promoted under various government programmes including the Swachh Bharat Mission, the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation, and the Namami Gange programme. Thus, the segment presents significant opportunities for all stakeholders.
