Trimbakeshwar council issues work order for STP worth Rs 31 cr

Trimbakeshwar municipal council has issued a work order for constructing a sewage treatment plant (STP) worth Rs 31 crore, followed by a network of underground sewage lines.

The council faced challenges from the National Green Tribunal (NGT) for releasing untreated sewage waste into the Godavari river.

The Chief Officer of the Trimbakeshwar municipal council, Sanjay Jadhav, told the media that the work order is been issued for the construction of STP within the council premises. Currently, the capacity of the STP is one million litres per day (MLD), which is insufficient for the sewage waste generated in the town.

He added that the Trimbakeshwar municipal council would set up an STP of the capacity of treating 5 MLD sewage, considering the rise in population in the last 25 years. The city's population is nearly 20,000, and the waste generated is above 1 MLD, and the town is witnessing issues in treating sewage waste.

The new STP will be functional in the next 18 months, after which the sewage waste will not be released into the river. The treated water will then be used in farms and other places. The harmful materials removed from the water through the STP will be converted into manure to be used in farming, an official said.
