BHANDUP WATER TREATMENT PLANT PDF

To reduce wastage of water and improve efficiency in water utilization, the Southern Railways has constructed a water recycling plant at Kochuveli railway station. The plant will be functional by the end of this month. The civic body has issued a show-cause notice to the contractor operating the Vadgaon Budruk water treatment plant for the death of an year-old boy, who drowned after falling into the open overhead tank at the facility while flying kite on Sunday afternoon. A six-feet-long Indian rock python was rescued from the Bhandup based water filtration plant on Friday, while a 5. Strict action was taken against factories for operating without water treatment plants.

This story is from September 14, Entry here is restricted and the place is crawling with security guards. Inside, around people work round-the-clock in shifts. They are here to ensure that over 12 million Mumbaikars receive a continuous supply of clean water from their taps each day.

Last week, the civic administration gave special access to a TOI team to the complex. The sophisticated plant here eliminates both bacteria and virus in the water before it is released to the city for consumption. The Bhandup plant treats bulk of the 3, million litres a day MLD supplied to the city. Every day, three to four tonnes of chlorine is used to treat water. The remaining supply is purified at the smaller Panjrapur plant in Thane district.

The British set up the first water pipe supply to Mumbai way back in , catering to approximately seven lakh people. Since then, the water network has expanded exponentially as the population burgeoned. Today, the city has an intricate pipeline network adding up to a gargantuan 4,km. The problem occurs when treated water is transported from the filtration plant to various parts of the city.

Sometimes contamination takes place due to old, corroded pipelines which pass through gutters. Impurities also occur due to leakages or low pressure in the pipelines. Before the Bhandup complex came up, the BMC used to issue warnings to citizens to boil water, especially during the monsoon, because of the high turbidity in water. But despite the plant, people still use water-purifying machines at home because some of the distribution pipelines are old.

Raw water from lakes arrives through trunk mains and into the inlet bay at the Bhandup complex where chlorine dose is added. It is then moved to settlors, where the sludge is removed. After that, the water goes to filters where suspended solids are removed. The final stage is post-chlorination area. At the water-testing laboratory inside the complex, assistant chemist Kanchan Godekar said as many as different tests are performed at every stage, every day.

There are 20 different sampling pipelines which continuously bring treated water at various stages of the process into the laboratory. The young assistant chemist revealed they also have to check treated water for radioactive material. Chemists here also test the water for escherichia coli e coli and total coliform. Navbharat Times.

Mumbai’s water treatment plant not upgraded ever in 30 yrs

While the civic body has a target of setting up a solar power plant of 20 mega watt MW in two phases, the current set up will generate around 2. The first phase, which has been concluded, included the construction of a plant 2. Our target is to set up a plant with a capacity to generate 20 MW. Meanwhile, we have already started running a small solar power project of 0. Other local bodies have also used solar power plants but of smaller capacities. This is a civic body project and not a public private partnership project. The Bhandup plant treats 2, MLD million litres daily of water.

This Bhandup complex is source of safe drinking water to the city

The plant is part of the largest water distribution project in India which aims to provide a constant supply of water throughout Mumbai. Water itself, is not a problem; the city has an abundant supply but the distribution system was insufficient to meet the ever-growing demand around 3. The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai decided not to repair the old pipelines, due to accessibility difficulties, but instead, has invested in a new infrastructure, constructing new underground tunnels under Mumbai. The largest tunnel connects Mumbai to the Bhandup water treatment plant which, on completion, will supply drinking water to around 4 million residents, making it the largest plant in India. Water from the Vaitarna River is carried through 35 kilometres of pipe, passing under mountains, to the state-of-the-art plant where it is treated and made safe to drink. When Degremont started work in , it selected Viking Johnson mechanical couplings and flange adaptors for joining plain ended pipes, of diameters ranging from DN to DN, in ductile iron and mild steel.
