National-level workshop on fecal sludge management to be held in Trichy

Trichy: A three-day training programme explaining the full chain of sanitation cycle from safe containment of human waste to proper disposal or reuse will be held here from November 23 to 25. Hosted jointly by the Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) and the Netherlands-based IHE Delft Institute for Water Education, the event will be conducted with Trichy as a case study covering the fecal sludge management (FSM), networked sewerage and safe on site sanitation system.

Organisers said the training is targeted at professionals working in the water and sanitation sectors of NGOs, civil and environmental engineers, urban planners and architects. It will be offered free of cost including food and accommodation for at least 50 participants in two batches. They will be explained on the working of public toilets, decanting stations and sewage treatment plant (STP).

“Even students in the final year of civil, environmental and architecture studies can apply for the programme. Participants will get to know about the challenges faced on the ground in ensuring sanitation and they will become familiar with the sanitation value chain,” K V Santhosh Ragavan, senior specialist with IIHS said. November 5 is the deadline to apply for the programme online through www.muzhusugadharam.co.in. A committee will scrutinise the applications and select the candidates. Candidates for the workshop apart from classroom sessions will be taken on field visits.

For further information, interested people can contact IIHS at 044-66305500.
