Sewage Farming In India

Sewage Farming In India

The sewage effluent can also be disposed of by applying it to the land. The percolating water may either Join the Water table or be collected below by a system of underdrains. This method can then be used for irrigating crops. And hence termed sewage farming, Since it not only disposes of the sewage but also helps in increasing crop yields (by 30% or so) as the sewage generally contains a lot of fertilizing minerals and other elements. Fertilizing elements like N, P, K, etc. do help in increasing the yield of cash crops like cotton, sugarcane, plantain, etc. 

However, crops to be eaten raw or which do not have any skin to be removed before eating should not be grown on sewage farms, although this is seldom practiced by the farmers.

But the sewage effluent must be treated before being used in sewage farming. In order to lay down the limiting standard for sewage effluents and the degree of treatment required, it is necessary to know all the consequences.

Sewage Farming Advantages

  1. In rural areas, the cost of land is relatively less. At the same time, the rate of water supply is generally less, resulting in concentrated sewage. For such cases, therefore, disposal through the land application may be preferred.

  2. In disposal bland application, sewage can be applied either raw or after primary treatment while in the disposal by dilution, efficient pretreatment, to meet the effluent quality requirements is a must.

  3. ln hot climates, the DO content of natural waters is low and the quantity of water flow is also less, resulting in pollution hazards if a high degree of pre-treatment is not applied to the effluents before discharging them. In such cases, disposal by land application is preferable.

  4. If the receiving waters are used as a source for water supply on the downstream side, disposal by dilution cannot be adopted unless a high degree of pretreatment is applied to the effluents.

  5. In disposal by dilution, the recreational use of natural waters will vanish completely.

  6.  Disposal by land application Especially through sewage farming will increase the yield of crops, etc.

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory The value of the coefficient of consolidation has been assumed to be constant.  The distance d of the drainage path cannot be measured accurately in the field. The thickness of the deposit is generally variable, and an average value has to be estimated.  There is sometimes difficulty 1n locating the drainage face, and sometimes thin previous seams that can act as good drainage faces are missed in the boring operations. The equation is based on the assumption that the consolidation is one-dimensional. In the field, the consolidation is generally 3-dimensional. The lateral drainage may have a significant effect on the time rate of consolidation. The initial consolidation and secondary consolidation have been neglected. Sometimes these form an important part of the total consolidation. In actual practice, the pressure distribution may be far from linear or uniform.

Types Of Current Collector

Current Collector A current collector is a device used to collect electrical current from a moving conductor, such as a train or a trolley. It is typically used in electric vehicles, such as trains and trams, to transfer power from an overhead power source to the vehicle's electric motor. The current collector consists of a sliding contact, which is often made of carbon or copper, that makes contact with an overhead power source, such as an overhead catenary wire or a third rail. The sliding contact is mounted on the vehicle and is typically in the form of a pantograph or a trolley pole. The pantograph is a device with a metal frame and a spring-loaded arm that presses against the overhead power source. It is raised and lowered by the operator of the vehicle, and as it moves along the overhead power source it maintains contact and collects the electrical current. The trolley pole is a vertical pole that is mounted on the roof of the vehicle and has a horizontal arm that extends out
