Project Detail

Nagpur the second capital of Maharashtra is situated in the heart of India. The city has a population of more than 2.7 million lakhs spread in approximate of area and is rapidly growing into a Metro city with an expected population of 50.00 lakhs in the next 30 years. Adjoining rural area within 5.0 km may be part of Metro region. Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is the organization for development of plans to prepare a long-term perspective plan for Water Supply & Sewerage Services in the city. NMC implemented Augmentation to Nagpur City Water Supply Scheme Pench-IV on priority to improve the water supply in the City. Present water supply to the city is 470 Mld for a population of 2.3 million. The Nagpur Sewerage System consists mainly of gravity sewers with only one pumping station and treatment plant located at Bhandewadi. Based on the topography, the system is divided into three zones viz. Central, Northern and Southern zone. A part of the flow generated in the Central zone (100 Mld) is collected, treated at Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) at Bhandewadi and is discharged in the nearby river. However, sewage from Northern and Southern zones and remaining of the sewage from Central zone flow to nallahs without any treatment. Due to groundwater pollution problems in the North zone of Nagpur and more percentage of slum population in the Northern zone, North zone is considered for the sewerage system implementation.
