Aurangabad’s STP water to be made cleaner for industry

Union Minister of State (MoS) for Finance Bhagwat Karad has instructed the Aurangabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) to prepare a detailed project report (DPR) for reuse of the treated water released from the sewage treatment plants at Kanchanwadi, Padegaon and Jhalta Phata using latest technology. The present STP water is not reusable.

Karad held a meeting with water experts from India and Israel at the Aurangabad Smart City Development Corporation Ltd (ASCDCL) premises this week. Israeli water expert Dr Lior Asaf in his presentation highlighted that 90 per cent of the treated water of STP could be reused.

Taking a cue from this, Karad told the AMC to prepare the DPR. He also assured the civic body of getting funds from the Central Government.

The capacity of AMC's STP at Kanchanwadi is 161 MLD, while the capacity of STP at Jhalta Phata and Padegaon is 35 MLD and 10 MLD respectively. Earlier, the treated water of Kanchanwadi STP was used in the construction of the Samruddhi Expressway. Later, the treated water of Jhalta Phata STP was being given to nearby farmers, while the treated water of Kanchanwadi and Padegaon STPs is released in the river and the nullah.

Efforts are now under way to supply the treated water of the STPs to the industries. Demand for this water will go up if the treated water is purer.
