In its ongoing efforts at rationalising water management by recycling and treating wastewater,the Delhi Jal Board on Thursday inaugurated a 10-million gallon per day (MGD) recycling plant at the Bhagirathi Water Works,in Gokulpuri,Northeast Delhi. The plant will get raw water from processed waste water from the existing 100 MGD Bhagirathi Water TreatmentPlant (WTP).
The plant,constructed at a cost of Rs 13.34 crore,would add another 10 MGD to the existing water capacity by treating the total recovered wastewater from the existing plant,which is expected to benefit more than 2 lakh people in the Trans-Yamuna area.
This water treatment plant will go a long way in solving water woes. With the commissioning of this plant,the Bhagirathi WTP has been made a zero liquid waste WTP, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said as she inaugurated the plant.
