Kejriwal green lights setting up of seven DSTPs in Burari
NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday approved setting up of seven decentralised sewage treatment plants (DSTPs) in the unauthorised colonies of Burari Assembly Constituency.
DJB officials presented details on setting up of these DSTPs during a meeting at the Delhi Secretariat on Monday.
"These seven DSTPs will cover sewer lines for 25 colonies in the area.
After setting up of these DSTPs, Burari would become the first assembly constituency where all unauthorised colonies would have sewer lines," said the Chief Minister's office.
The seven DSTPs would treat a total of 14.5 million litres per day of sewage water, which would further be used for several purposes like water body recharge, irrigation etc.
Kejriwal, who also serves as Chairman of DJB, asked officials to start the work and to come up with a proposal for DSTPs all over Delhi at the earliest.
He also asked senior officials to brief him on the current status of water supply in all colonies of Delhi, filling up of all vacant posts and presentation on DSTPs.
