DJB to commission 20 wastewater treatment plant at Pappankalan
In order to provide efficient water and wastewater services to residents, the Delhi Jal Board (DJB) has undertaken several work to augment its water and wastewater infrastructure. The board on Sunday decided to commission the newly constructed 20 MGD wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) at Pappankalan.
According to the Jal Board , this plant has been constructed at a cost of Rs 243 crore (approximately), with an aim to clear sewage from Palam and TD-2 drain and treat it before discharging into the Najafgarh drain.
“The commissioning of the 20 MGD Wastewater Treatment Plant at Pappankalan will ensure that all waste water that flows into the drain is first treated and then discharged into the river, thus checking pollution in the Yamuna,” said a senior officer of DJB.
At present, the plant is commissioned for treating sewage. Other such units will be commissioned by December.
