Bodhgaya is a small town, located in the Gaya district of Bihar. A population size of 51,900 was considered for the preparation of the SFD. There is no treatment facility available for sewage and faecal sludge generated in the town. 51% of the population of Bodhgaya depends on Onsite Sanitation Systems. The FS collected by the vacuum tankers is discharged into open fields . As there is no treatment facility in Bodhgaya and since the groundwater table is high, also, the FS collected from households is indiscriminately discharged into the environment. Hence, excreta of 100% population are unsafely managed, this includes the 49% population which defecates in open.
