Project Detail

The city at present has a secondary Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) of 100 Mld at Bhandewadi, which is in the central part of the city and is able to treat a little under one third of their sewage, which is then discharged into the Pili River. The sewage from the rest of the central zone and the northern and southern zones flows untreated into the Nallas River, and farmers down the stream use this water for irrigation. This has caused groundwater pollution in the northern part of the city. The DRUM Project a USAID technical assistance project to work in Maharashtra with a focus on Nagpur city and will work closely with WENEXA, should it decide to work in Nagpur. Because WENEXA-II focuses on both energy and water, working within a defined watershed or micro watershed is essential.
