Cluster Septic Tank in Savda Ghevra, New Delhi, Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board, Jamshedji Tata Trust, Holicm Foundation, London Metropolitan University Nine thousand slum families resettled in Savda Ghevra, Delhi, have been challenged by the lack of water and sewer infrastructure in their area. Personal toilets with hollow pits instead of septic tanks, below kerchief-sized plots built by people, have high and recurring cleaning costs, besides causing groundwater underneath to be polluted. CURE has built a shared closedloop, sanitation system a cluster septic tank (CST) that is networked to home toilets through simple sewer lines, is upended to a decentralised wastewater treatment system to convert black water into a useful resource for irrigating, flushing, construction etc. The idea was affiliative. People participated in the decision making, the design, the construction and the maintenance action. A maintenance fund is capitalized from monthly household contributions of those connected to the system and is managed by a Block Operation and Maintenance Committee, an aggregation of street leaders. The CST is designed for 322 households, 110 are built and plugged into the sewer

Delhi, Ward Sanitation Plans Ward Sanitation Plans (4) were developed for the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) to localize City Sanitation Plans (CSP) at an area level to enable city governments to more efficiently plan and optimize use of resources. Aligned to the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM), the Ward Sanitation Plans are addressing the entire sanitation bandwidth within the functional space of EDMC – solid waste management, public toilets and drainage at a ward level. Based on socio-spatial data generated from the ground, the Plans recommend comprehensive solutions for solid waste management to be implemented in partnership with traditional/informal waste collectors and aggregators – home segregation, doorstep collection, decentralized composting, aggregation at dhallaos, transportation, resource recovery, processing, treatment and end disposal. The Plans incorporate designs for improved waste collection stations and a behaviour change communication programme for all ward-stakeholders – formal residents, market associations, sanitary workers and city officials. Site specific waste water treatment solutions are proposed and include spot fixing, outfall linkages and DEWATs
