Work on this is going on on war footing.
CM Arvind Kejriwal said that water from the coronation plant will be brought to the advanced treatment plant. After this, the water will be brought to the water treatment plant through Yamuna, after which 50-60 MGD of water will be used for drinking. With the completion of Coronation STP, sewer will be cleaned on one side, due to which Yamuna will be clean and on the other side drinking water will also increase. Arvind Kejriwal said that we have got permission from the central government to use this water for drinking. The Upper Yamuna River Board has checked all the parameters.
Modern Plant with 70 GMD Capacity
During this inspection, Arvind Kejriwal said that our aim is that whatever sewer water of Delhi goes into Yamuna, that water should be cleaned and poured into Yamuna. This coronation plant of Delhi is probably the largest plant in the country. The capacity of this plant is 70 MGD. This plant can treat 70 MGD of sewer per day. This is a modern plant. It is fully automatic. It has Skadar system, through which any machinery in the entire plant can be started and any machinery can be stopped by pressing any button.
CM Arvind Kejriwal said that 70 MGD of water is being treated from Coronation STP. This is called the accuracy of 10/10 in technical language. Will make this water more clean. For this, another advanced treatment plant will be set up on that side of the Jahangirpuri drain, where the purity of the water will be taken up to 3/4. After this we will take 70 MGD of water from here. Through Palla, water will come to our water treatment plant through Yamuna. In this way, we can use about 50 to 60 MGD extra water for drinking in Delhi also. This technique is used in Singapore. In Singapore it is called New Water. On the same basis we are using in Delhi also.
sewer water will be used for drinking
During this, while answering the questions, CM Arvind Kejriwal said that this water can be used for drinking. There is nothing to be scared about.

We will fill this water. Many kilometers of water will come from Palla along the Yamuna. After this the water will be treated for the third time in the water treatment plant and will be completely cleaned. This is the first Coronation plant in Delhi. An even bigger plant is being built in Okhla. It is a 120 MGD capacity plant.
