STP to be ready by November.
The three sewage treatment plants (STP), each having capacity to treat 17 million litres of wastewater a day, will be made functional by November.

The public health wing of the Public Works Department had taken up construction of STP at Lawspet, Dubrayapet, and Kanaganeri as part of the ‘’Comprehensive Sewerage Scheme for the Urban Areas of Puducherry,’’ under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission in 2011-12.

The project taken up at cost of ₹300 crore was scheduled to be completed in two years but financial constraints, delay in getting environmental clearance and digging of roads to lay sewer lines hampered progress of work in setting up the STPs.

According to a senior official in the Public Works Department, the civil works for establishing the treatment plants had been completed and the trial run of STP at Lawspet had commenced. Trial run for the other two plants at Dubrayapet and Kanaganeri would begin shortly. “The plants will be made operational by November,” said the official.

The project involves laying of sewerage lines for about 290 km covering an area of 1,500 hectares of land within the urban limits.

The sewer lines connecting the pump houses, numbering around 10, were laid, except in a few areas where the line had to be laid after cutting open the National Highway. In these areas, the PWD had decided to use the horizontal drilling technology to avoid cutting the road, the official added.
