Status and Strategy for Faecal Sludge Management in The Kathmandu Valley
PDF File Size: 1.73 MB | Download   
In the Kathmandu Valley, around 70% of the households dispose their excreta directly into the sewer line while remaining 30% of the households still depend on onsite systems such as pit latrines and septic tanks. Te practice of using onsite system is found to be more environmentally friendly in the present context of Kathmandu compared to direct discharge of wastewater into the sewer lines. Currently, due to lack of adequate wastewater treatment facilities, more than 95% of the sewerage ends up into the rivers without any form of treatment. Disposal of untreated sewerage and haphazard dumping of solid waste are seen as the two major contributors of river pollution in the Valley, evident from the deteriorating water quality of River Bagmati and its tributaries.
