Pune: For better treatment and purification of water, the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC)  has decided to set up a new water treatment plant in Parvati, Pune. The current plant is over 50 years old.

Giving more details about the project, Vikram Kumar, Municipal Commissioner, Pune Municipal Corporation said, “The current water treatment plant in Parvati treats around 535 million litres of water every day.  It is the busiest treatment plant in the city. Since the plant is over fifty years old, PMC must update it or construct a new plant. According to preliminary estimates, the new plant will require Rs 125 crore in funding. A detailed plan is ready and PMC will present it to the estimate committee for approval.”

Apart from installing a water treatment plant, Kumar stated that the PMC is forging ahead with the equal water distribution system, and as part of the scheme, the civic body is creating water tanks, laying 1,300 kilometres of water pipelines, and installing water metres.

“The main purpose of installing the water meters is not to charge citizens according to the meter, but to identify leakages and conduct a systematic audit of the city’s water resources,” he added.
