25MLD sewage plant in the works for Manesar

03 May 2021

To increase sewage treatment capacity in Manesar, the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) will start constructing a sewage treatment plant (STP) having a capacity of 25 million litres per day (MLD) from July, said officials. 

“This new STP will focus on sewage treatment of all villages falling on the stretch from Manesar till Naharpur Kasan village. This will be in addition to the 50 MLD STP already functional for the Industrial Model Township area of Manesar,” said a senior GMDA official, requesting anonymity.

The authority has invited tenders for the project and given time till May 11 for companies to submit proposals. However, due to the prevailing Covid-19 situation and lack of labour force, the official cited above said that on-ground work is likely to get delayed, and start by July, with a target to finish the project by December 2022.

The official cited above said that they have decided to undertake the work on behalf of the health department, following a request in this regard. “The public health department is supposed to provide sewerage facilities in villages of Manesar region under Mahagram Yojana, but they did not have land available with them. So, GMDA is providing the land while the public health department will bear the cost, which is estimated to be around Rs 31.76 crore,” the official said.
