Smart water initiative to support MMF sector by Surat civic body

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-09-13 15:00:00 – Surat

The Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) has decided to upgrade its existing tertiary treatment plant (TTP) at Bamroli by increasing the capacity at 40 million liters per day (MLD). The new facility will supply additionally 40 MLD water to the textile dyeing and printing mills at Pandesara GIDC. A smart water initiative taken by civic body to support the Surat’s man-made fabric (MMF) sector.

There are around 325 dyeing and printing mills at Sachin, Pandesara, Kadodara and Palsana. Pandesara GIDC has the highest presence of 100 dyeing and printing mills that need round the clock water supply. Each of the dyeing and printing mill is spending Rs 7 lakh per month for water charges. The total spending on the water in Pandesara GIDC is pegged at Rs 70 crore per annum.

Bore well water is not suitable to maintain quality in textile industry. Industries need 85-90 MLD water. As present 100 MLD tertiary plant of SMC at Bamroli is capable to supply about 40 MLD treated waste water to industries, the industrialists in Pandesara have requested SMC to set up second 40 MLD capacity tertiary plant.

For this, the civic body will be spending Rs 100 crore for the construction of the TTP plant at Bamroli. The waste water will be collected through pipelines and brought to the TTP, where it will be treated as per the industrial grades.

A new tertiary treatment plant with the capacity of 40 MLD per day is going to be set up. They will be getting around 40 MLD industrial water in the next three to four months. This will take the total treated water supply at 80 MLD said Vakharia president of South Gujarat Textile Processors Association (SGTPA).
