PM Modi will inaugurate six mega projects in Uttarakhand on Tuesday for a clean river Ganga

All 30 projects are fully complete reducing pollution shredded into Ganga from 17 towns near the river Ganga.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to inaugurate six mega projects under the Namami Gange Mission for the state of Uttarakhand on Tuesday at 11 AM via video conferencing.

All 30 projects are fully complete reducing pollution shredded into Ganga from 17 towns near the river Ganga.

The projects include the construction of a 68 MLD Sewage Treatment Plant (STP), up-gradation of the existing 27 MLD at Jagjeetpur, in Haridwar and construction of an 18 MLD STP at Sarai, in Haridwar. The inauguration of 68 MLD Jagjeetpur project also marks completion of the first sewerage project taken up on hybrid annuity mode of PPP.

In Rishikesh, a 26 MLD STP at Lakkadghat shall be inaugurated. The Haridwar-Rishikesh zone contributes about 80% wastewater load into the Ganga river. Hence, the inauguration of these sewage treatment plants will play a significant role in keeping the Ganga clean, said Prime Minister`s Office in a statement issued on Monday.

In Muni ki Reti town, the 7.5 MLD STP in Chandreshwar Nagar will be the first 4 storied sewage treatment plant in the country where the limitation of land availability was converted into an opportunity. The STP was constructed in less than 900 sqm area which is about 30% of the usual area requirement for STPs of such capacity.

The Prime Minister shall also inaugurate a 5 MLD STP at Chorpani, and two STPs with capacities of 1 MLD and 0.01 MLD at Badrinath.
