Xylem help to build Sehore’s first wastewater plant
Sehore, a city in the Madhya Pradesh state in Central India, is seeing rapid industrial growth at the moment – and while that bodes well for the region’s economy, it also comes with a number of predictable challenges. Amongst those challenges are how to manage wastewater and provide enough drinkable water for the city’s growing population – luckily, international water company Xylem Inc. is an expert in both cases.
Xylem will assist Ankita Contstruction, which has been contracted by the Municipal Corporation of Sehore to manage the build of the city’s new treatment plant, to provide expertise and technology on wastewater treatment. The company is an acknowledged global expert when it comes to water reuse and recycling, and the plant in Sehore will be an important factor in improving the local environment. A 2015 study reports that “river stretches in the Madhya Pradesh region had some of the highest rates of pollution,” in Central India.
According to Aravind Andani, the managing director of Ankita Construction “This new treatment facility will improve general hygiene and health in the city, as well as enhancing the water quality of the River Siven and the surrounding environment.”
Raveendra Bhat, director of treatment and dewatering at Xylem India, shares this sentiment: “Approximately 100,000 people in the city of Sehore will benefit from this new plant, which will enrich the quality of life in the region. We are pleased to be able to support this ambitious project by providing a bespoke solution that will facilitate the reliable, sustainable treatment of wastewater.”
The new plant is expected to be operational by August 2018.
