PM to inaugurate sewage infrastructure projects in Varanasi next week under Namami Gange programme

PM to inaugurate sewage infrastructure projects in Varanasi next week under Namami Gange programme

New Delhi, Nov 8 (UNI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate to the nation three sewage infrastructure projects costing Rs 425.41 crore in Varanasi as part of the Namami Gange project.

He will also lay the foundation stone for another project when he visits the holy city next week on November 12.

Among the projects to be inaugurated are a 140 MLD (Million Litres per Day) Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) at Dinapur built at a cost of Rs 235.53 Crore. The project includes 10 years’ Operation and Maintenance agreement with the builder.

The second project includes three sewage pumping stations at Chaukaghat (140 MLD), Phulwaria (7.6 MLD) and Saraiya (3.7 MLD). The total cost for the three pumping stations was Rs 34.01 crore.

The third project is a 28 km long relieving trunk sewer, rising mains and interceptor sewers along Varuna and Assi rivers at a cost of Rs 155.87 crore.

The Prime Minister will lay the foundation stone for a Sewerage Management Scheme for Ramnagar at a cost of Rs 72.91 crore. This will include a 10 MLD STP and diversion of four drains.

The sewerage projects will result in increasing the sewage treatment capacity in the city from 102 MLD to 242 MLD. The long term O&M provision will ensure that the STP is not only created but is operated and maintained by the builder.

The new plant will result in treatment of 140 MLD sewage before being released in the river thereby reducing the pollution of the river Ganga.

These projects, along with two other ongoing projects of 120 MLD capacity at Goitha and 50 MLD at Ramana will take the sewage treatment capacity in the city to 412 MLD, which will be adequate for the sewage treatment requirements till year 2035, said an official press release.

There is no sewage treatment facility in the Ramnagar town so far.

The Ramnagar project, for which the foundation stone is being laid, will intercept four main drains of Ramnagar town to prevent pollution of river Ganga.
