Sewage Treatment Plant to be Set Up in Lucknow

A new sewage treatment plant (STP) with a capacity of 249 million liters per day (MLD) is set to be established in Lucknow by 2025. The plant will be located at Bharwara in Gomti Nagar, and will be funded by the Namami Gange project.

The new STP is expected to treat all of the wastewater generated in Lucknow, which currently stands at around 550 MLD. This will help to improve the quality of the Gomti River, which is currently polluted by untreated sewage. The new STP will be a major step towards addressing the pressing issue of water pollution in Lucknow. The plant will use advanced technology to treat wastewater and will be able to treat wastewater within a day. This will significantly reduce the discharge of untreated sewage into the environment and will help to improve the quality of the Gomti River.

The construction of the new STP is part of a larger effort to improve the environment in Lucknow. The Lucknow Municipal Corporation (LMC) is also working to improve the city's sewerage system and is working to tap the remaining seven drains that fall into the Gomti River. The LMC is also working to promote public awareness of environmental issues. The LMC is organizing a number of events and initiatives to raise awareness of the importance of protecting the environment. With the upcoming construction of a new STP, Lucknow will not only have the capacity to treat the existing wastewater but also accommodate the increasing sewage generated by the growing population. The new plant will bolster the city's efforts to ensure a cleaner and healthier environment for its residents and contribute to the overall conservation of the Gomti River.

The additional project director of the State Mission for Clean Ganga, Pravin Mishra, highlighted that Ganga Samitis, dedicated committees responsible for Ganga River conservation, have been notified in every district. This initiative aims to foster community involvement and raise awareness about the importance of preserving and rejuvenating water bodies.In observance of World Environment Day, the State Mission for Clean Ganga, Uttar Pradesh, and Axis Bank organized a Clean-a-thon at Jhulelal Vatika Ghat on the Gomti River. Volunteers enthusiastically participated in cleaning the ghat, showcasing their commitment to environmental stewardship and promoting public participation in maintaining the cleanliness of water resources.

The establishment of the new STP in Lucknow aligns with the objectives of the Namami Gange program, a flagship initiative of the Indian government aimed at rejuvenating the Ganga River and its tributaries. This significant investment in sewage treatment infrastructure underscores the government's commitment to tackling water pollution and ensuring sustainable water management practices. As Lucknow moves forward in its mission to create a cleaner and more sustainable future, the establishment of the new sewage treatment plant stands as a testament to the city's dedication to environmental preservation and its commitment to securing a better quality of life for its residents.
