Granting the demand for a separate network of pipeline other than drinking water pipeline, the MCGM has decided to create a network of an independent pipeline for treated water.
The implementation of this scheme will be started from the Rajbhavan. An independent pipeline will be laid at Banganga STP from where 3 lakh litre treated water will be supplied to Rajbhavan. It will be the first attempt in the city to provide the separate pipeline for treated water.
The work of laying this pipeline, measuring 830 meters, has been taken up by the civic body and its estimated cost is Rs 67 lakh. A contractor has been selected to carry out this work.
The Rajbhavan requires 3 lakh litre water every day. It was the demand raised from the Rajbhavan. If hotels or companies register their demand for treated water, such independent pipelines will be laid and water will be supplied to them, informed assistant municipal commissioner Ramesh Bambale.
It is to be mentioned here that Race Course and Wellington Club used the treated water. These clubs are supplied this type of water through pumping while Ghatkopar pumping station supplies untreated water to RCF which treats this water before putting it to use.
