The cleanliness in urban areas is the key factor in providing the lavish lifestyle to the residents. While on the other hand, the rural and semi urban areas struggle for a clean environment due to lack of the modern cleanliness practices.
Proper desludging is a key concern in the rural and semi urban areas due to the lack of the sewerage lines. The septic tanks are built in houses and societies which need to be desludged by the municipal authorities. They provide the desludging team, appliances and manage the schedules.
The septic tanks are cleaned as per the requests created by the households or the schedule for a zone or ward. The schedule / household requests are processed by the municipal authorities and the selected vendors are assigned the tasks. Vendors provide trucks to collect the faecal waste from assigned location and transports it to the Faecal Sludge Treatment plants.
As per the National Faecal Sludge and Septage Management (FSSM) Policy issued by the Government of India, Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs (MoHUA), regular desludging of septic tanks is recommended to keep a check on environmental pollution. The systematic extraction and collection is crucial for effective desludging. The Central Public Health & Environmental Engineering Organization (CPHEEO), India suggests that the septic tanks should be cleaned at least once in a tenure of two to three years.
But with the tremendous increase in the number of households, the desludging process is becoming more time consuming and complex.
To provide a solution for this issue, Convexicon has built the Smart Desludge Monitoring System which can be used to plan and monitor all the desludging related tasks effectively. Using the De-sludge monitoring solutions, the authorities can monitor whether the waste is collected from designated households and dumped at dedicated dumping sites or treatment plants or not.
The Convexicon’s Smart De-sludge Monitoring System provides various services including:
1. Task planning and allocation
2. Employee/vendor management
3. Service request
4. Grievance management
5. Septic Tank Overflow Tracking
6. Tracking of the waste collection process
7. RFID tags for tracking which households are cleaned and which are pending
8. Driver app for easy team communication and effective task tracking
9. Reports and analytics
Let’s further understand how the Convexicon’s De-sludge Monitoring Solution works. The app has extensive list of functionalities including the IoT based data tracking. The users / residents can use the app to view their previous dates of septic tank cleaning, upcoming schedule and can also raise a septic tank cleaning request in case they require an early cleaning. The supervisors can make use of the app to view and manage the raised grievances. They can also use the app to schedule and track the required tasks to monitor the desludging process. The Nagar Nigam authorities can use the app to track the status of different zones under them and raise as well as track any concerns they may have.
The app also comes with a driver panel allowing the drivers to view the allocated locations and update the relevant status using the app. This makes the communication and work collaboration among the team effective. Infinite number of users (supervisors, drivers, other staff) can be added and relevant roles and access to the users can be providing using the admin panel as per the subscribed plan.
Now, let’s see that apart from the process management, how is the real time tracking of the desludging done. The Convexicon’s Smart De-sludge Monitoring System also provides the data tracking through RFID tags. The technicians can place the separate RFID tags on households that have been cleaned or scheduled to clean. As such the supervisors don’t need to view complete documents to track the area covered. They can simply view the RFID tag locations on the map and click on them to view the relevant information. Different Tags can be assigned for different stages of the process. RFID tags can also be attached to the trucks/other vehicle on duty for the asset location management. Simply by viewing the RFID tag location, supervisors can get to know whether the assigned vehicle is on the household or treatment plant location. RFID tagging also helps in septic tank overflow tracking which helps the supervisor create the cleaning schedule accordingly.
For the benefit of our readers, we will like to explain a bit about the working of RFID tags. The RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags are the smart labels which can store information in different formats including serial numbers, shorts descriptions and even pages of data. RFID tags have smart barcodes to identify different assets. RFID tags can be used to customize the whole process and identify different assets used in the desludging process as per the requirement.
Convexicon also provide the GPS tracking solutions which can be embedded into the Smart De-sludge Monitoring System to provide the real time driver tracking, geofencing and route management services, as per your requirement.
