Black & Veatch has acquired a contract from Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to prepare a detailed masterplan for recycled water.
The EPC solutions provider said in a statement: “The strategic recycled water masterplan will outline the framework for reuse of tertiary treated effluent from all seven of Mumbai’s wastewater treatment plants, and serve as a guiding document to build infrastructure for recycled water in a phased manner.”
Black & Veatch India Managing Director Anand Pattani said BMC’s vision is to maximise the use of tertiary treated effluent, over the next 50 years, in order to offset fresh water demand and alleviate the anticipated deficit in water supplies.
“Using tertiary treated effluent could potentially defer the need for additional water supply projects, preserve raw water resources, and pave the way for sustainable growth,” he said.
