The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) will be holding a series of public awareness programmes on the installation of modular sewage treatment plant or gray water treatment plant (STP/GWTP) and dual piping system.

Recently, the BWSSB made it mandatory for the buildings/apartments or flats with 20 or more houses/buildings with a built-up area of 2,000 square metres and above including basement to instal STP/GWTP and dual piping system. The treated water will be used to flush toilets and other purposes. The rule also applies to educational institutions with or without hostels with a built-up area of 5,000 square metres and above, townships or projects developed on 10 acres and above.

A penalty of 25% of the water and sanitary charges will be imposed on residential buildings for the first three months, in case of violation, and the charges will double thereafter, until installation. For non-residential buildings, the penalty starts from 50% of the water and sanitary charges and 100% thereafter.
