Karunguzhi De-sludging Tool
The Karunguzhi De-sludging Tool is an application designed by TNUSSP to implement a process of scheduled cleaning and emptying of household septic tanks by the Karunguzhi Town Panchayat. The tool creates an automated de-sludging calendar for each household based on the GoTN’s Operative Guidelines on Septage Management, thereby facilitating the TP to communicate to all households, the date and periodicity of desludging ahead of time. Through the process of capturing and maintaining accurate data on households with septic/holding tanks, tank measurements, date of last cleaning and volume pumped, the tool enables the Karunguzhi Town Panchayat to track not only the households but also private operators/truckers involved in de-sludging, and discharge of sludge at the Karunguzhi FSTP.
