Source: The Statesman, New Delhi, Date: , 2009

dirty waterConstructed at a cost of Rs 26.59 crore, the Delhi Jal Board on Monday commissioned its first waste water recycling plant in Haiderpur. The Haiderpur water treatment plant (WTP), which has an average production capacity of 200 million gallons per day (MGD), will now be able to supply 16 MGD additional water for Delhiites, which was otherwise lost in the process of treatment. “The commissioning of this waste water treatment plant will result in the availability of an additional 16 MGD for the citizens of Delhi,” DJB spokesperson Sanjam Chima said. The Jal Board is also in the process of starting three more waste water recycling plants in the next two months — a 10 MGD plant at Bhagirathi, an 11 MGD plant at Wazirabad and an 8 MGD plant at Chandrawal.
