The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) has signed a MoU with National Environmental Engineering Research Institute (NEERI) to develop 12 sewage treatment plants (STP).
NEERI will provide its expertise in this field and the treatment plants to help NDMC to irrigate its parks in a bid to develop green areas and revamp big and small parks.
The 12 STP projects of NDMC will also help increase the green cover in NDMC areas and curb dust pollution.
- In the first phase, 12 STPs will be installed across in NDMC areas. Each plant will have a capacity of treating sewage water ranging from 50,000-1 lakh litres.
- All these plants will be connected to all parks of NDMC which will help the horticulture department to maintain the parks.
- These plants will be also installed at schools also and after reviewing the first phase, it will expand it to other areas as well.
- Besides, under the same project barren lands that have no use under NDMC areas will be developed into green areas.
