Satyendar Jain inaugurates new water treatment plant in North Delhi

Delhi Water Minister Satyendar Jain inaugurated a wastewater treatment plant at the Coronation Pillar site in North Delhi. It is a significant step towards cleaning the Yamuna river.

The plant has a capacity of treating 31.8 crore litres of wastewater every day, and the minister also laid the foundation for a 71.5-km-long sewer line in Sangam Vihar and Deoli Constituency.

Jain revealed that the plant would serve the needs of sewage treatment of wastewater that is developed from the areas- Delhi University Campus, Nehru Vihar, Shakti Nagar, Kamla Nagar, and Roop Nagar.

Besides this, the plant would also treat sewage generated from unauthorised colonies like Saroop Nagar, Bhalswa, Sant Nagar, and the Wazirabad group.

He told the media that currently, the sewage that falls directly into the supplementary drain would get trapped and treated at the new treatment plant via the pumping station available in Burari.

The Delhi government told the media that the plan is being developed with the latest technology. Besides the provision of power generation, the plan includes effluent parameters and has nitrogen and phosphorus removal, mechanical dewatering of sludge, disinfection, making the plant significantly self-sustainable.

The government has also started the work of laying 71.5 km of sewer lines in 20 unauthorised colonies of Deoli constituency and Sangam Vihar.

Currently, due to the absence of sewerage systems in the area, sewerage from this area is being discharged into local ponds, septic tanks, etc.

The Water Minister said to decrease this water-polluting content, sewer lines would be laid to treat sewage at the nearby wastewater treatment plant after which it would directly go into the river.
