India: Mitigation of Coastal Pollution Black & Veatch to Develop India’s Largest Wastewater Project
Black & Veatch has been awarded a contract by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) to expand the wastewater treatment facilities (WWTF) in the city.
Mumbai/India – Black & Veatch will undertake a feasibility study, and prepare a detailed project report and tender document, for the proposed 847 million litres per day Malad Zone WWTF. The project, once commissioned, will be India’s largest.
Black & Veatch will be involved in designing a modern WWTF to mitigate coastal pollution. Further environmental benefits will be achieved through water reuse; wastewater will be treated for non-potable applications, reducing the stress on Mumbai’s water resources. As part of the project, Black & Veatch will assess the possibility of using space at five satellite pumping stations for treatment facilities, as an alternative to creating a single, large facility at Malad. This approach would simplify distribution from the water reuse facilities. One of the reasons for the project is compliance to new discharge standards revised by the Central Pollution Control Board.
