Tertiary Treated Water – Transforming Water Usage
Mohali will get tertiary treated water for irrigation and cleaning cars. The aim is to reduce the consumption of potable water. The cost of setting up this treatment plant is estimated to be around 85 crores.
The Mohali treatment plant is inspired by a similar treatment plant set up by Chandigarh Municipal Corporation, which has provided tertiary water to the residents of Chandigarh for 100 rupees per month. This water can be used for all purposes that do not require potable water. This initiative can be a game-changer as 80% of India’s potable water is used in irrigation activities.
