To tackle water crisis in the parched city, the state government has approved a project which will help residents utilise recycled water for watering plants and washing vehicles.

This is the first-of-its-kind project in the Millennium City, which will curb the wastage of potable water.

A separate 18-km-long pipeline will be laid for supplying recycled water to residential, commercial and government offices.

The government is hopeful of saving treated water in the city where water scarcity is a major problem.

“This pipeline will carry a maximum of 10 mld (million liter a day) recycled water and we hope this will be enough to cater to the needs of the city,” said Pankaj Kumra, chief engineer, Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda).

He said that a tender for Rs 24-crore project is to be floated soon. It is being uploaded on Huda’s website.
