This project, funded by the HT Parekh Foundation in 2020, aimed to develop and implement citywide faecal sludge and septage management (FSSM) plans for the cities of Satara and Kolhapur with a special focus on urban slums. The FSSM plans included scheduled desludging of septic tanks in pilot zones of both cities, co-treatment at STP in Kolhapur and FSTP expansion in Satara. Monitoring systems have been set up for the safe desludging of septic tanks and treatment, and the treatment plants are to be developed as sanitation resource centres. These activities were supported by capacity building of city officials and other stakeholders.
