WD News: The Delhi government has approved a project of laying a 14 km long sewer line in two unauthorised colonies and one village (Jat Khor) of Bawana and providing free sewer connections to 4,824 houses.
In addition, one MLD capacity decentralised sewage treatment plant will also be constructed. Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that about 20,000 people will benefit from this project, worth Rs 68 crore.
The Delhi government has decided to connect every household to the sewerage network. Sewerage coming out of here will be sent through sewer lines to the nearest Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), after which the treated water will flow into the river.
Mr. Sisodia said that a Sewer Pumping Station (SPS) of 3 MLD capacity will be constructed at Bawana to pump sewer water to the STP on behalf of the Delhi Jal Board (DJB).
Alarms would be installed in this sewage pumping station to warn about water overflow or any malfunction. This will give immediate warning to the officials of the Jal Board that the risk of sewage overflow has increased so that appropriate steps can be taken in time,” he said. “Monitoring of wastewater pumping stations will be done in real-time,” he added.
