The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) is planning to carry out secondary treatment of domestic sewerage from areas west of the Sabarmati river and send it for recycling and reuse at Dholera Special Investment Region (DSIR),said standing committee chairman Bhupendra Patel. The committee has decided to give 2.5 hectare land at Vasna to Gujarat Infrastructure Development Board (GIDB) and 0.3 hectare land a kilometre away from Vasna for a break pressure tank.
Patel said the plan was to pump and send out 477 million litres per day (MLD) of treated water to DSIR. The treated water will be supplied at Rs 4.30 per kilo litre,he added.
He also said 208.5 MLD water would be provided to 2,700 industrial units in Vatva,Naroda,Narol and Odhav industrial estates to prevent bore well water use which lowered the water table.
The committee will decide the rates to be charged from industrial units for use of this water,Patel said,adding,a memorandum of understanding would be put into effect with the industrial units concerned.
