The initiative was set in motion during the momentous inauguration of the Johkasou Onsite Sewage Treatment Plant. The generous courses aim at empowering youths and potential workers to gain expertise in onsite wastewater treatment systems.

India facing a water crisis
India, as a nation is facing a water crisis as the gap between demand and supply is increasing day by day also, the traditional models of treating wastewater are corroded. Keeping immense potential and opportunities to treat the wastewater, India is in need of vision and a skilled workforce for the rising sector. According to UN reports, India is likely to face a severe water crisis due to a substantial gap between demand and availability.
Sewage Treatment Plants
A collaboration from NITI Aayog has cited that the situation will be further exacerbated due to depleting groundwater resources and increased stress on food and energy requirements by 2030. Furthermore, the lack of a skilled workforce and good O&M have been identified as the biggest reasons for the failure of Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs) across the country.
Bringing water-positive India
Raj Nehru, Vice Chancellor, Shri Vishwakarma Skill University, said “The revolution of new clean and green businesses is set to bring water-positive India and will immensely contribute towards a sustainable environment. The movement will generate next-generation business opportunities for lakhs of youths. This skilled manpower will have the potential to be hired by foreign companies as demand is clearly rising for a sustainable environment across the globe”.
He further added, “We will start the training of beneficiaries phase-wise and will significantly involve practical sessions so that their training could match with the actual job on the field. We hope to contribute to the government of India’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) focusing on the Swacch Bharat Mission, Smart City, and Jal Jeevan Mission. We are highly dedicated towards our mission of focusing on the quality of skill education, aspired by students and admired by industry, nationally and internationally.”
The rapidly changing climate has posed a different challenge and the need is to bring appropriate measures that will help save and reuse the wastewater through updated technology and a skilled workforce.
