Namami Gange Project
Over 75 lakh litres of polluted water is being dumped into river Ganga every day, said a senior official engaged with the Centr’s Namami Gange mission, a pet project of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Speaking to ANI, Sumit Agarwal, senior project manager at R K Engineers Sales Limited, said the pollutants being dumped into the river will be capped after the sewer treatment plant is constructed here.

“75 lakh litres of polluted water that is being dumped into Ganga per day will be stopped after the construction of sewer treatment plant is completed,” he said after he accompanied Minister of Jal Shakti Gajendra Singh Shekhawat on an inspection of the sewer treatment plant in Rishikesh.

“Shekhawat-ji met us today and asked us to complete the project as soon as possible, we are working towards the same,” Agarwal said.

R K Engineers Sales Limited firm has taken up the work for sewer plants in Haridwar and Rishikesh as part of Namami Gange.

“In Haridwar, we have completed our work before the stipulated time. In Rishikesh, we are planning to make two small grinder pumps (SGPs) of 5 MLD that will be commissioned in August and 7.5 MLD that will be commissioned in December,” Agarwal said, adding, “Three sewers of 7.5 MLD, running directly into the Ganga river, will be capped. These are the most polluted sewers of Rishikesh.”
