DELHI JAL BOARD DRAWS UP ACTION PLAN FOR USE OF RECYCLED WATER PRODUCED IN..

DJB draws up action plan for use of recycled water produced in Wastewater Treatment Plants

New Delhi: DJB produces around 2100 Million Litres of recycled water in its 30 WWTPs
Action Plan aims to increase utilization of this water from 25% to 40% in one year
Recycled water can be used for non-potable purposes like irrigation/horticulture, flushing/washing, cooling plants etc.
Bulk consumers like DDA, Municipal Corporations, DTC Depots, Power Plants, Industrial Areas identified to be supply recycled water from WWTPs
A new plan scheme approved by the Delhi Government to lay the network for supply of recycled water
Use of recycled water from STPs will reduce stress on drinking water and bridge the demand supply gap

The Delhi Jal Board is actively encouraging the use of recycled water in order to bridge the gap between the demand and supply of potable water in the city. The recycled water produced by its Waste Water Treatment Plants is of good quality and is being promoted for non-potable purposes, such as irrigation, horticulture, Power Plants, Water Bodies, construction activities etc., thereby making additional water available for potable purposes. This water is being supplied at a subsidised rate of Rs.7 / Killo Litre.

Presently, 2100 Million Liters of recycled water is being produced at the 30 Wastewater Treatment Plants of DJB. About 25% of this recycled water is presently being used for irrigation, horticulture and cooling in power plants by various agencies i.e. Tata Power Delhi Distribution Limited, Pragti Power Corporation Limited, Central Public Works Department, Delhi Development Authority, Tourism etc, hence, increasing the scope of using the remaining 1600 Million Liters recycled water per day for non potable purposes.

A series of meetings have been held with the organizations which have the potential to use recycled water. Sh. Manish Sisodia, the Hon’ble Dy. Chief Minister, Delhi, has also directed all the organizations to submit their action plans for closing their tube-wells and using recycled water for horticultural purposes. DDA, South Delhi Municipal Corporation and Pragti Power Corporation Limited have already submitted their requirements and areas for use of recycled water. DJB is working on plans to provide regularized water to them.

To facilitate all the consumers, Delhi Jal Board is planning a city wide network for supply of recycled water from the Wastewater Treatment Plants to different areas of the city. For the first time a new plan scheme has been approved in the budget of Delhi Government for 2015-16 to provide funds for city wide network for supply of wastewater.
