A collective of multi-level officials, including engineers, of the KWA have submitted a set of recommendations to the higher-ups on the issue, requesting a review of all such connections and for rules to be made stringent. Sewerage connections are likely to come under the Kerala Water Authority (KWA) scanner soon with more and more consumers failing to install sewerage treatment plants (STP) after the connections are given.

According to the officials, there is no record of the sewerage connections allotted so far and there is an urgent need for such a register. Further, they felt that permissions for connections for buildings with an expanse of 2,000 square metres or above, or complexes with facilities for 10 and above families, should be given by an executive engineer only.

The collective has called for the preparation of a list of connections which still has not installed STPs. Many have not installed treatment plants even years after they were given connections.
