With the current scenario, the programme “Nirmala Bhavanam – Nirmala Nagaram” was initiated in the Alappuzha Municipality. As the name suggests, the strategy of the campaign is to make the homes clean, leading to clean streets and towns
Under the 10th Malaysia Plan, the large aerated lagoon sewage treatment plant in Pantai Dalam was upgraded and converted into a state of the art mechanized underground regional sewage treatment plant (RSTP) with public amenities. The plant known as Pantai 2 RSTP has an ultimate design capacity of 1.423 million population equivalent or 320 MLD of treated effluent. It is located in the Pantai Catchment which is the largest of eight catchment within the city of Kuala Lumpur.
The Pantai catchment covers an area of over 6,700ha that includes the central and south-western parts of Kuala Lumpur. The construction of the Pantai 2 RSTP started in July 2011 and was completed in July 2015. The main sewage treatment plant is built below ground level whilst the sludge treatment facility is above the ground level, over 17 ha of land area which also includes an above ground recreational park and amenities. Pantai 2 RSTP utilizes the Advanced Anaerobic-Anoxic-Oxic (A2O) process that is effective in removing nitrogen and phosphorus in the wastewater compared to the conventional treatment system.
With the current scenario, the programme “Nirmala Bhavanam – Nirmala Nagaram” was initiated in the Alappuzha Municipality. As the name suggests, the strategy of the campaign is to make the homes clean, leading to clean streets and towns. This campaign was aimed at encouraging Decentralized Waste Management Practices to avoid piling up of waste at a single point, and thereby protecting the municipal area from the hazards of pollution and out break of epidemics.
