Sewage treatment plant of 78 mld capacity planned in Vadodara, Gujarat

The Vadodara Municipal Corporation (VMC) in Gujarat is planning to construct a 78 mld sewage treatment plant (STP) in the city, at an estimated cost of Rs 1.04 billion. At present, there are seven STPs in the city which have a combined capacity of 276 mld. However, with the inclusion of additional areas under VMC’s jurisdiction, the installed treatment capacity has become inadequate. The new plant will assist the authorities in ensuring 100 per cent treatment of sewage. Moreover, plans are afoot for supplying the treated sewage to a wildlife park.
