The most popular understanding of sanitation in urban areas is restricted to stopping open defecation, using toilets and disposing of the waste through the Underground Sewerage System. Though the Government of Tamil Nadu, through its Operative Guidelines on Septage Management, has outlined the cost advantages for strengthening on-site sanitation systems (septic tanks and twin pits), the proof of concept for these approaches remains to be established in the perception of decision-makers and implementers. A two-day Orientation cum Training Programme on Fecal Sludge and Septage Management was organised for Officers working in State-level agencies, ULBs, and selected Utilities.
