Pact signed for Mathura refinery to use 2 litres of recycled sewage water per day

New Delhi, Jun 13 (UNI) Union Minister for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation Nitin Gadkari on Wednesday presided over the signing of a tripartite Concession Agreement between National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG), Uttar Pradesh Jal Nigam and Triveni Engineering and Industries Ltd. for developing an Integrated Sewage Infrastructure for Mathura in the Hybrid Annuity-based public-private partnership mode.
An agreement was also signed between NMCG and the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) for re-use of 2 crore litres per day of treated sewage water by the Mathura refinery, which has so far been using water from the over stressed Yamuna. The agreements were inked in the presence of Union Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Dharmendra Pradhan.
Speaking on the occasion Mr Gadkari said the step will not only help in abating pollution, but would also bolster economy.
He said that in another example of waste to wealth , the Power Ministry was going to make it mandatory for power plants along Ganga to use treated waste water. Railways will also be asked to use treated waste water to wash rail wagons.
"It is my vision to develop a world class ecological and environment friendly River Front park on 35 km stretch of river Yamuna in Delhi,’’ he added.
The Mathura sewage project is special in three respects: It is the first Integrated Sewage Infrastructure project based on One City – One-Operator concept, which means that the project integrates building of new STPs and maintenance of the existing infrastructure under one operator for the entire city.
Secondly, the treated sewage water is going to be reused by IOCL, and thirdly, the project is based on Hybrid Annuity Mode, the third of this kind in this sector after Haridwar and Varanasi.
The components of the Mathura project include construction, operation, and maintenance of a 30 MLD STP in Masani, the work for which has been awarded to the Triveni Engineering & Industries Ltd. at an estimated cost of Rs. 437.95 crore.
Other components are development and rehabilitation of Masani Sewerage Infrastructure, upgradation and rehabilitation of the existing Masani STP with a capacity of 6.8 MLD, upgradation and rehabilitation of two existing STPs (14.5 MLD and 16 MLD) in the Trans-Yamuna region of Mathura, leading to creation of a total sewage treatment capacity of 67.3 MLD.
A 20 MLD Tertiary Treatment Plant (TTP) will also be set up for the supply of treated wastewater to Mathura refinery of IOCL at an estimated cost of Rs. 162.38 crore over 15 years. IOCL will bear the entire operations and maintenance cost of the TTP amounting to Rs. 82.38 crore for a period of 15 years.
Over and above this, IOCL will pay Rs. 8.70 per kilo litre towards the partial capital cost for the development of the TTP, Ministry sources said.
