well,nallahs?rivers or other water bodiesif storm water drains are not designed and maintained to harvest the water run-off and take the surplus efficiently from the streets to a water bodyif covered trenches being used for the purpose of drainage get clogged and are not regularly cleaned especially before the rainy seasonthen we must recognise that our urban areas will head towards the plight of Surat of 1994 But present day Surat has left that surat (literally meaning appearance) far behind and is working not only on its integrated waste management practices but also on a mission to take pre-emptive adaptation measures to mitigate the impact of climate change Since the Tapi river is the only reliable source of water for Surat and the projections are that the available water is likely to be inadequate for meeting the summer demands of Surat from around 2015 onwardsthe Suratis recognise the importance of recycling domestic waste wateralong with demand management and water conservation The Surat City Resilience Strategy is a reflection of this recognition on the part of SMC What impressed me most about the approach of SMC was their attention to the nitty-gritty of the extension and maintenance of the sewerage networkand augmentation/ upgradation of a highly efficient and almost comprehensive system of treatment of waste wateron the one handand their focus on longer-term sustainability through a series of initiatives using biogas to generate electricitygenerating windmill energy and experimenting with generation of solar energybuilding a tertiary treatment plant to generate revenue through the sale of water to industrysetting up a common effluent treatment plant through public-private partnership in Pandesaraand a non-incineration based solid waste-to-energy plant (expected to be commissioned by June 2014) using state-of-the-art Concord Blue gasification technology to produce clean energyon the other Among the feast of initiatives on sustainable developmentwe focus on SMCs work on waste water treatment and its use of sewage treatment plants (STPs) to generate electricity from biogas This enables SMC to meet some of its electricity demand for its multiple operations in the city and also to contribute to a better environment Lying in an almost flat terrain poses a special challenge to sewerage and storm water drainage systems for Surat In the last 10 yearsconsiderable effort has been directed at developing a storm water drainage systembut even soas of 2012-13the coverage is only 64 per cent better than in most Indian citiesbut not good enough The JNNURM has played an important role in helping augment the storm water drainage network in the old city area and in developing networks in the Vesu urban settlement and in the New East Zone areas Waste water treatment in Surat covered as much as 92 per cent of the population in 2006 but the very large expansion in city limits brought the coverage down to 75 per cent in that year Through concerted effortSurat has managed to increase its waste water treatment coverage of population to over 90 per cent in 2011-12once again This compares with an average of 30 per cent for all Indian cities Navi Mumbai is the only city in India that treats 100 per cent of its waste water before disposing the same As the network of sewer lines and rising mains (pressure pipes to transport the sewage from the lowest point of the sewerage network through pumping to the treatment plant and/or the outfall point) has increased to 1428 km in 2012-1335 sewage pumping stations and nine STPs have been put in place to treat waste water Once againthe JNNURM has made a major contribution through funding projects worth Rs 4322 crore for augmenting sewerage network and augmenting/ upgrading STPs SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition)at a project cost of Rs 306 crorewas also a gift of the JNNURM for the old city area for operating its system of 23 pumping stations and six STPs It enables monitoring and operating the system from a central officewhich leads to significant saving in energy consumption and efficient operations Converting sewage gas from STPs to generate electricity has been a major initiative of sustainable development on the part of SMC Altogetherseven STPs are producing 35 MW of electricity in Surat Another 116 MW is generated through windmills and an additional 84 MW from the same source will come on stream by June next year MK Dasmunicipal commissionerSMC proudly informed me that 30 per cent of SMCs peak demand (46 MW) for electricity is being met through these green initiatives All in allSurat has come a long way Its vulnerabilities have not vanishedbut the approach of the Suratis is one of grit and determination to
