The company will help the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) in the project, which is intended to address coastal pollution and conserve water resources. Black & Veatch will undertake a feasibility study and prepare a detailed project report and tender documentation for the proposed Malad Zone WWTF. A capacity of 847 million litres per day will make it India’s largest WWTF.
The facility will be designed to reduce coastal pollution. Further environmental benefits will be achieved through water reuse; wastewater will be treated for non-potable applications, reducing the stress on Mumbai’s water resources.
As part of the project, Black & Veatch will assess the possibility of using space at five satellite pumping stations for WWTFs, as an alternative to creating a single, large WWTF at Malad. This approach would simplify distribution from the water reuse facilities.
