Njeliyanparamba sewage plant ready to take off.

The Kozhikode Corporation’s waste water treatment plant at Njeliyanparamba will be operational by the end of August.

The plant that has been set up at the far corner of the waste treatment yard has been working for the last two weeks on experimental basis. The plant has been constructed under the Kerala Sustainable Urban Development Project (KSUDP) at a cost of Rs.75 lakh. It has a capacity of 75,000 litres and has been built by Mumbai-based Ionex Envirotech Pvt. Ltd. to treat the effluents produced at the waste segregation and treatment yard in Njeliyanparamba.

The water that seeps out of the waste processing yard is collected in a separate tank for treatment. A concrete tank 2.5 metres in depth was constructed for the purpose. The water goes through a mixture of sand, coal and bacteria. The resultant water is disposed into the drainage. The tank is supposed to put an end to the pollution problem in Njeliyanparamba and the resultant foul smell.

The Corporation had constructed a sewage treatment plant at Njeliyanparamba four years ago, but it did not succeed. It was constructed by Ramky Enviro Engineers under KSUDP. It failed to pass the pollution test and the Pollution Control Board refused to sanction no-objection certificate.

The pollution problem in Njeliyanparamba had escalated to such an extent that the waste water flowed onto the nearby National Highway during rain. The local people had expressed their apprehensions to the Corporation many a time and hence the new plant was constructed on war footing.
