The Ordinance Factory Ambajhari (OFAJ) estate holds residential quarters for the staff and employees of the factory. Currently, the untreated sewage is directed towards the wastewater treatment plant, which was commissioned in the 1960’s, and the treated water is then discharged into the nearby stream. However, treated wastewater generated in such government staff colonies could also be reused in order to reduce the fresh water consumption on site. Currently fresh water is being used at OFAJ for maintaining the multiple gardens, orchards and sport complexes within the estate.
The aim of the project is to reuse treated wastewater that will result in the reduction of freshwater consumption. The solution proposed was to establish an engineered natural treatment system. Ordnance factories are located in different parts of the country. The successful implementation of reuse of treated wastewater may result in further replication of such systems at other ordnance factories across the country.
