In hilly regions and lower-income settlements globally, inaccessibility of septic tanks and pits often necessitates manual scavenging. Addressing this challenge, the double booster pump is an innovative approach, employing an additional pump to desludge tanks and pits situated in roads unreachable by conventional desludging trucks. Blue Water Company pioneered this innovative approach of technology enhancement significantly extending the vehicle's reach by 150-200 feet, thereby mitigating the risks associated with manual scavenging.
Recognizing this process innovation, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Government of India awarded the Blue Water Company for ‘Innovation in Sanitation’ on World Toilet Day 2018.
Built and Operating World’s Highest Faecal Sludge Treatment Plant
In 2017, Blue Water Company (BWC) constructed a unique faecal sludge treatment plant (FSTP) in Leh, a prominent tourist town situated at an elevation of 3500 meters in the Himalayas. Since its inception, BWC has been managing the operation and maintenance of this treatment facility, offering a crucial solution for the safe disposal of sludge generated by numerous hotels, resorts, and establishments catering to Leh's thriving tourism sector. The absence of a sewer network and designated disposal sites compelled these establishments to dispose of faecal sludge indiscriminately, causing severe environmental and public health concerns.
Recognized globally as the highest FSTP and one of the highest wastewater treatment facilities, this initiative confronts unique challenges posed by Leh's freezing winters and arid summers. The plant stands as a testament to BWC's commitment to environmental preservation, public health, and innovative solutions tailored to the specific needs of Leh's tourism-centric environment.
