Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has tied up with a Canadian firm to clean the Mithi river and Powai lake in the city. The Canadian firm has proposed the use of DCL-17 technology in order to carry out cleaning work for the two water bodies in Mumbai. According to BMC, this method can prove to be very effective. 

DCL-17 technology has been successfully used throughout the world in various applications and it has been derived by DASUN International Incorporated, which is a Canadian company. The use of this technology in order to clean the water bodies helps in killing harmful pathogens and viruses. The same has been successfully implemented at lakes in Dhaka, Bangkok, Greater Toronto area, and Mississippi river.
