OBJECTIVE:

Setting up and functioning of Centre of Excellence in the area of Urban Development on “Decentralized Wastewater Management, and Public Private Partnerships”

 

SCOPE:

  1. Preparation of detailed implementation plan in identified cities in case of decentralized wastewater management and identification of cities and projects for PPPs
  2. Helping the ULBs in the implementation of the plan for decentralized wastewater management plan and  prepare project reports for the projects identified for PPP.
  3. Documentation and dissemination of the concepts and findings. 

 

SPECIFIC TASKS TO BE CARRIED OUT

Decentralized Wastewater Management (DWWM)

Phase-I (first three months):

1.      Identification of cities for DWWM

2.      Detailed action plan of the activities to be carried out by the center with regard to DWWM

3.      Preparation of the PERT chart showing the activities

 

Phase-II (One year):

1.      Collection of base line data on various aspects of sanitation of the selected cities.

2.      Identification of appropriate treatment system based on topography, soil characteristics, land availability, the reuse potential, possible buyers of treated wastewater, life cycle assessment etc.

3.       Preparation of a feasibility report on DWWM, which fits into the over all sanitation plan of selected cities and transfer the reports to the respective city/district authorities. 

4.      Convening meetings with the stake holders to assess the feasibility/sustainability of the proposed projects and obtain the necessary approvals. 

5.      Preparation of detailed implementation plans for DWWM for the selected cities.

6.      Provide the process design based on the detailed implementation plan, vetting of designs of units provided by the implementation agency and periodical inspection of the technical aspects of the implementation.

7.      Evaluate the performance of the systems and give technical suggestions as and when required to the respective implementing agencies.

 

Phase-III (3 months)

 

1.      Preparation of a manual dealing with the design and operation of various decentralized wastewater treatment system, which includes the cost and life cycle analyses, and guidelines for selection of processes.

2.      Undertake capacity building through training programs on wastewater related issues for various agencies and people involved in such activities.

 

Long Term Activities:

1.      IIT Madras will act as a nodal point for checking designs / vetting of designs, providing consultancy services for the preparation of detailed implementation plans for other cities, and performance evaluation of various existing and newly constructed facilities.

2.      IIT Madras will also provide technical help in trouble shooting of any such systems.

3.      Undertake capacity building through training programs on wastewater related issues for various agencies and people involved in such activities.

 

 

 

Public Private Partnerships

Phase-I (first three months):

1.      Identification of cities and projects for PPPs

a.       IITM will, in coordination with line agencies and public officials in the selected ULB, identify two projects that have a high likelihood of being implemented via PPPs. MoUD will facilitate the setting up of interactions between IITM and public agencies in the selected city for this purpose.

2.      Detailed action plan of the activities to be carried out by the center with regard to PPP

3.      Preparation of the PERT chart showing the activities

 

Phase-II (next one year):

  1. IITM will engage with consultants and the public agencies in order to prepare project reports for these projects. IITM will provide inputs on the identification of data collection requirements, technical and economic analysis to be conducted, selecting an appropriate PPP approach, and preparing the overall report. The report will be prepared by the consultant engaged for this process. The report will be sent to the India Infrastructure Project Development Fund (IIPDF) for funding. IITM can choose consultants for this purpose.
  2. Once the project report has been prepared, IITM will provide inputs to the public agencies involved on selecting a transaction advisor for the project, preparing the concession agreement and overseeing the bidding process. This process will be coordinated by the line agencies, and IITM’s role will be purely an advisory one.

 

Phase III (3 months)

  1. IITM will document the entire project preparation process, conduct an analysis of the outcome and make recommendations for future implementations of PPPs in ULBs in the sectors identified.. .
