New Delhi, September 25
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today reviewed a plan for setting up decentralised sewage treatment plants (STPs) across Delhi.
The Chief Minister held a meeting with senior officials of the Delhi Jal Board (DJB). In the meeting he was briefed about the 600 sites identified in unauthorised colonies, villages and other areas for establishment of decentralised STPs.
According to sources, these STPs would not only solve the sewage crisis, but would also produce a huge amount of recycled water in the city. In the first phase, STPs would be set up in these 600 locations.
Later, the DJB has to identify more locations for decentralised STPs.
A statement issued by the government said that decentralised STPs would be installed and treated water would be used for different purposes such as waterbody recharge, horticulture and other non-potable uses.
A day after taking charge of the water department, Kejriwal had visited three decentralised STPs in areas under the New Delhi Municipal Council.
He visited the STPS in Nehru Park, Satya Sadan and NP Bangali Government School in Gole Market, and asked the Delhi Jal Board to come with a road map for decentralised STPs all over the city.
Sources say he is likely to get fresh posting at Centre
