Chandigarh, July 4

Dr Naveen Gupta, Department of Microbiology, Panjab University, has been given a consultancy project by the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation (MC) for the management of tertiary-treated sewage water in the city.

“Under the smart city initiative, Chandigarh has been using the tertiary-treated sewage water for irrigation purposes in various areas of the city. However, a significant hurdle is the foul smell. Despite this leap towards a healthy ecosystem, the problem downplays benefits society could reap from the act,” Gupta added.

“Now Panjab University will help the MC in the management of the tertiary-treated water,” said Gupta. Earlier, Gupta had suggested solutions to tackle the problem, including aeration of the treated water, for getting rid of the foul smell.—TNS
