PCMC Uses Water From Purification Plant To Water Gardens

PUNE: The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) is making optimum use of its water resources as it ensures that waste water generated at the purification plant in Nigdi does not go down the drain, but is used for gardening purpose.
Around 3.5 MLD (million litres per day) or 35 lakh litres of water is used for gardening purposes at the Durga Devi hills and 12 other gardens in the nearby areas.  The PCMC draws 380 MLD water from Ravet and treats it at the water purification plant at Nigdi.
According to civic officials, the waste water from the purification plant at Nigdi is nothing but backwash water which is highly muddy and is not potable. At the water purification plant, there are 40 filter beds containing sand through which the water is passed for filtration.
Incidentally, the Pune Municipal Corporation is also working on a plan to recycle backwash water from the Parvati Water Works. Around 35 MLD water would be recycled and used, say civic officials.
