A total of 20 MGD sewage generated from these areas is planned to be taken to the proposed STP at Rohini phase II through pumping stations covered under the scope of the instant work. This will not only help the residents of the area have better sanitation but will also help in abatement of pollution to river Yamuna.
Proposal for the construction of 11.00 ML capacity UGR & BPS, laying of feeder and peripheral mains etc at Patparganj was approved by the board. This will boost the pressure in the network in the areas of Patparganj village, Pandav Nagar E, F, P Blocks, Acharya Niketan, Partap Nagar, Shashi Garden and adjoining areas.

Presently the whole sewage of this area is being discharged into storm water drains and ultimately to river Yamuna via Najafgarh drain causing pollution of Yamuna. This will do away with the problem and addition of pollution to Yamuna.
