Appropriate design standards and construction specifications for tertiary sewerage systems

This case study describes the testing of sewer pipes under controlled conditions and evaluation of the performance of existing Faisalabad Area Upgrading Project (FAUP) sewers laid with community involvement and utilising non-'traditional' design standards, some of which were adopted from the NGO Orangi Pilot Project (OPP). It confirms that viable options for local sewerage schemes exist and that it is possible to reach agreement, at least locally, on the standards and specifications that are appropriate for these systems. The challenge for Government is to use these and other findings as the basis to build wide consensus on acceptable standards and specifications for sewers in low-income areas. This report will provide those working for government agencies and Non-governmental organisations in Pakistan, as well as representatives of the international donor agencies with documentation of the process that was undertaken over the past 7 years towards developing these standards and specifications.

Abstract

This case study describes the testing of sewer pipes under controlled conditions and evaluation of the performance of existing Faisalabad Area Upgrading Project (FAUP) sewers laid with community involvement and utilising non-'traditional' design standards, some of which were adopted from the NGO Orangi Pilot Project (OPP). It confirms that viable options for local sewerage schemes exist and that it is possible to reach agreement, at least locally, on the standards and specifications that are appropriate for these systems. The challenge for Government is to use these and other findings as the basis to build wide consensus on acceptable standards and specifications for sewers in low-income areas. This report will provide those working for government agencies and Non-governmental organisations in Pakistan, as well as representatives of the international donor agencies with documentation of the process that was undertaken over the past 7 years towards developing these standards and specifications.
