Delhi to construct Asia's largest wastewater treatment plant

The Delhi Government is getting Asia?s largest wastewater treatment plant built in Okhla, where 564 MLD of sewage can be treated daily. The project is in its final phase, and Delhi Water Minister Atishi inspected this plant recently.

Upon observing the delay in the project, the minister pulled up the officials and directed them to complete the project by the end of this year.

During the inspection, Atishi said, ?This plant with a capacity of 564 MLD is going to be a game-changer in the direction of cleaning the Yamuna. After this plant is operational, instead of directly releasing millions of litres of sewage into the Yamuna every day, it will be treated and then discharged. After the operation of this plant, the Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) level of polluted water can be reduced to 10. The water treated from the plant will not only help in cleaning the Yamuna but will also be useful for gardening and other purposes.?

During the visit, the Delhi Water Minister found that the project was behind schedule. Instructing officials, she stated that the remaining work should be completed by the end of the year with the new timeline. Progress reports should be submitted to her every Monday. Emphasizing the significance of these plants in clearing the Yamuna, she insisted that any delay in their construction would not be tolerated.
