Domestic water supply and wastewater management are essential indicators of urban quality of life globally, and yet remain major environmental issues in Nigeria. The rapid growth in population has resulted in a higher rate of wastewater generation in Nigerian cities. However, many city plans are unable to cope with these issues appropriately. As a result, the poor management of wastewater is an ever-present problem with its attendant risks to public health and environmental safety. Therefore, this study attempts to analyse the control of urban development and management of domestic wastewater in Suleja, Nigeria. The study critically examines the current urban planning systems and presents an overview of selected technologies adopted for the decentralised treatment and disposal of wastewater in emerging nations. To this end, a documented and dissertation based analysis technique was employed in this study. Firstly, the paper begins by providing a methodical framework for comparative examination of the centralised and decentralised systems. The legal setting and policy framework, present city plan, and wastewater management are also explained. The study finds that loose development control and organic growth of residential development have a strong influence on wastewater management in the community.
