New Sewage Treatment Plant in Gurgaon
A new sewage treatment plant (STP) is garnering all the eyeballs in Gurgaon now. Constructed at Dhanwapur, the STP is all set to be inaugurated on June 30. It has been constructed by the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) and it will filter sewer from Gurgaon before and release it in Nafargarh drain.
The plant, which is an important addition to the city is built to contain a total capacity of 100 million litres per day. As per reports, it will run on trial for three months. An official talking about the plant said, ''The construction work for the STP had started in March 2012. The deadline for conclusion of the project was September 30 this year, including a three-month trial run.''

The official also said, which was reported by, that as compared to the old treatment plant, the new plant has better capacity and would meet the needs of the city. He also added that the previous plant used to treat 68MLD of sewage and needed 90MLD to be treated every day. Once the new plant is operational, situations would better for Gurgaon.

The untreated drain water flows into Yamuna and this had to be corrected. HUDA says that around about 190MLD of sewer water is being disposed through the drain into the Yamuna every day. As of now, HUDA is operating two STPs in Gurgaon, apart from the newly-constructed plant in Dhanwapur.

However, an official has stated that chemicals have been released in the drains and only solid waste has been removed previously. According to him, even the new plant would not help as it will not treat the chemicals in the drain.
