frequent removal of sewage from collection tank, clogging of pumps, smell in treated sewage water
The collection tank gets filled up often and tankers have to come frequently to empty the overflowing tanks. The treated water starts smelling foul within hours of storage for reuse. There is high consumption of treatment chemicals and electricity, which is unlikely if the plant is functioning properly. There is a large volume of stinking sludge produced from the STP. A properly designed tank should be able to handle the household wastewater that comes from a residence or community.
