      Clients Problem(Background) 

      Aurangabad is situated on the Kham river in the Dudhana valley between the Lakenvara Hills and the Sahara mountain range in Maharashtra. Being a historic city (since the 16th century) it has a heavy population from the Mughal era and the river Kham has a deep impact on the lifestyle of Aurangabad by water supply, protecting from floods and enemies. This is a low rainfall region but the water supply was not interrupted due to visionary water management practices. However, now a day the water demand of the city rises day by day.

      In considering the future and present situation of the city the new authority has again rethink on the historical water resources. Here the management problem is taking a toll as River has the optimum pollution level. It receives domestic and industrial wastewater from the city and adjoining industrial areas from 249 points almost. This is impacting the water quality of the Godavari River as well. The reported pollutant levels are well above the permissible limits. So to solve the water scarcity as well as maintain the environmental greenery it’s necessary to clean the “nullah” and restore the sustainability and ecological health of the water and river bank as soon as possible. 


      Clients Problem(Objective) 

      1. Make a plan for restoring the sustainability of the “Kham River” that can play a vital role to solve the scarcity of water 
      2. Restoring the ecological health of the river 
      3. Meet the goals of the restoration campaign — ‘Our River, Kham River’ 

       Our objective: 

      Kham River Restoration

      Kham River is a rain-fed river. Due to various solid waste infusions, the river is drying. So we have to trap the waste from different nullahs and drainage pipes. 


      Our suggestions: 

      After a detailed site visit to various nullahs joining Kham river, it was decided that it is best to install Trash booms, Trash nets, and Eco booms in appropriate locations for capturing floating trash. 

      For the drainage pipes, we are putting trash booms & nets which are like a demountable nets placed on the end of the Drainage Pipe.

      Trash booms & Trash nets are made to capture gross pollutants. Commercial grade, reusable nets are able to capture gross pollutants as small as 5 mm, including organic materials (such as leaves) that could reduce the levels of phosphorous and nitrogen in the water. This economical solution is highly effective for “first flush.”  


      There are around 15 sites where Trash has to be trapped through ECO-Booms. Eco Booms are specifically designed to be installed in low-depth nullahs where there is not much water. The different variants of the standard Eco Booms are able to stop anything flowing downstream. Designed and used specifically for rapidly moving waters carrying structure, an organic material, and catastrophic amounts of debris – either on a temporary or permanent basis. Available in any length – also supplied in 35′ sections for temporary installs. (Customization available). 

       Project Status: 

      Around 50 meters have been installed in Panchayat Samity, Times Colony, and Golden Bridge and the rest is under process 

      • Control of odor and improvement in the aesthetics of the riverfront 
      • Obstruction of the dumping of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) in the river is and adoption of filtering of suspended solids and contaminants before discharging in the river 
      • Facilitation of natural aeration and bio-control of pollutants 
      • An uninterrupted flow of the river with meandering and bank stabilization 
      • Overall improvement in all the parameters such as DO etc. of the river, thus, enhancing the water quality of the river
