Hi-tech sewage plant to keep Ganga clean

Haridwar, Jan 31 (PTI) A modern sewage plant to keep the Ganga clean and capable of treating 27 million litres of polluted water will soon start functioning, a project which began as part of the preparations for the Kumbh Mela 2010.

The Rs 21-crore fully automatic plant will use the most advanced cyclic effluent treatment in the world to ensure that Ganga, whose water a recent study had said, was below the standards of the Central Pollution Control Board for bathing, flows clean.

“We are fully ready to treat the sewage. As and when the sewage is transferred here through the pipeline which is being laid by the government, we will start treating it,” Harish Karkera, General Manager (Projects) UPL Environmental Engineers, the firm carrying out the project along with GCEPL told PTI.

The plant, which is about 20 kms outside the main Haridwar city, is next to the 18 million litre sewage treatment plant that is already functioning.

A recent survey by Dehradun-based People’s Science Institute said that the Ganga has been polluted due to continuous discharge of untreated waste and effluents from various drains directly into the river.

“The construction of the project has already been completed and commissioning of the project with raw water is presently in progress. Whatever other work is left, is only related to visual appeal,” Karkera said.

Rs 209-cr drainage project okayed

ERODE: The government has approved a Rs 209.23-crore underground drainage (UGD) project for Erode.

Underground Drainage project

According to official sources, Rs 71.14 crore will be given as loan to facilitate the long-pending project while Rs 62.77 crore will be obtained as grant from a German bank. The State government and the local planning authority will grant Rs 9.83 crore and Rs 3.60 crore respectively. The remaining Rs 61.89 crore will be borne by the local body, of which, the contribution from the citizens will be nearly ten per cent of the total cost, around Rs 21 crore.

Apart from the 45 wards in the civic body, Surampati, Periyasemur, Kasipalayam and Veerappanchathram municipalities and other areas which are going to be annexed with the corporation, would benefit from the scheme too.Under the scheme, toilet wastes would be collected from over 85,790 houses and other buildings by laying pipelines over a 581-km stretch.

The sewage would be pumped to six treatment plants, that will be established under the project. The treated water would be collected at Peelamedu and Kasipalayam Municipal area.

The scheme’s main aim is to check the discharge of urban sewage into the Cauvery river. The government has allotted the entire sum for the project, excluding Rs 61.89 crore. The corporation has invited global tenders for the work on July 24. The work would be carried out by segregating the town into four zones. The tender estimates would be sent to the government and then the work would commence with an aim to complete it within three years.

However, an independent councillor Radhamani Barathi recalled that the TN Water Supply and Drainage Board had already constructed two treatment plants at a cost of over Rs 7 crore in two parts of the town to treat the sewage, flowing in Pitchaikaranpallam and Perumpallam Odais (stream).

The scheme was initiated with the help of Central aid.

But, due to some technical defects, Erode Corporation refused to take over the project, so its 45- acre site in which the open treatment plant exists, has remained idle for the past many years.

Note: People should be aware that, how the money spent on projects are idle, due to lack of planning… I urge the Erode corporation to take action and start using the two treatment plants, Just recall 7 crore is spent on it and if it is idle, it is a shame for erode corporation…

Sewage treatment plant to be set up in Pallipalayam

ERODE: “Hundreds of textile dyeing industries are discharging their untreated effluents into the Cauvery river. Even the domestic wastewater is let into the river contaminating it to a great extent. So the Pallipalayam Grade III Municipality has planned to set up a sewage treatment plant,” said Chairman E. Mani here on Monday.

He said that there were 21 municipal wards in Pallipalayam Municipality supplying 24-lakh litres of water to the residents besides the over 500 private and 50 municipal borewells. Residents discharged the wastewater into the drains that also let into the river.

Rs. 9 crore allotted

According to Mr. Mani, Rs. 9 crores was granted to the municipality under the National River Action Programme some years back, but the fund had remained idle. Hence steps had been taken to construct a tank to treat sewage.

With the Council’s permission, 21 acres had been purchased in Elandaikuttai village and handed over to the Tamil Nadu Water and Drainage Board for the construction of the sewage tank.

All the sewage would be diverted to Elandaikuttai through big pipelines for treatment. He said that a sanitary complex had been built in Aavarampalayam, but even after six months, it remained unused.

WHETHER THESE FUNDS ARE UTILISED PROPERLY ?

I DONT THINK, STILL I AM FINDING EFFLUENTS FLOWING INTO THE RIVER !

FOR YOUR AWARENESS JUST CHECK THE SEWAGE WATER FROM DOMESTIC AS WELL AS INDUSTRIES ARE FLOWING FROM PALLIPALAYAM TO THE RIVER. !
