STP On Terrace
“Concept: This image shows the use of a Sewage Treatment Plant on the terrace to
address the challenges of space in tightly packed cities such as Mumbai.”
While building a new building, or retrofitting an older one it’s difficult to disturb the ground floor area. But most of these buildings have enough space on the terrace for a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). Just moving the STP from the bottom to the top can solve some critical problems:
- Space efficiency: You won’t need to disturb the ground floor or the
bottom floors as they are usually the busiest.
- Minimize foul smell: STPs under the ground floor usually start smelling after some time because a lot of waste is collected. On the
terrace, the smell will blow away with the wind, and maintenance or
fixing issues will also be easier.
- Retrofitting: Installing an STP will also be important in older
buildings. But since older buildings have a space problem, the STP
can be installed on the terrace.
- Recycle water: STP provides you the ability to recycle and reuse
water which reduces the dependency on outside sources of water.
