The Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) is all set to lay pipelines to supply treated water in upcoming sectors 58 to 115 with its engineering wing having sent the final estimates to the state government head office in Chandigarh for approval. The report of this big-ticket project had already been submitted on July 9.
Water will be supplied from the Chandu Budehra water treatment plant located along the northern peripheral road (NPR) in west Gurgaon.
"As soon as the government approves the final estimates — officially termed the detailed notice inviting tender (DNIT) — we would invite tenders. The project completion period would be two years from the date of the tender," said Pankaj Kumra, Huda chief engineer.
As per estimates, 110 mgd (million gallons per day) treated water would be supplied and 22 lakh people covered under the project.
From Chandu Budehra, a 1600 mm-pipeline would be laid up to Basai water treatment plant. This single pipeline would then bifurcate, one line going along the southern peripheral road (SPR) and another going along the NPR.
"Sectors 58 to 75 are located along the SPR, 76 to 115 are located along the NPR and sectors beyond lie in west Gurgaon. Gurgaon, west of NH-8, is emerging as an area with potential for group housing and plotted localities. Population growth is estimated from around 22 to 30 lakh in Master Plan 2025," said a senior Huda official.
With a treated water supply line, Huda has a plan to supply recycled water as well.
"For that, a separate pipeline would be laid from Dhanwapur sewage treatment plant (STP) to supply recycled water to Sectors 58 to 115. We have a plan to supply recycled water to existing sectors 1 to 57 as well and for that we have already prepared estimates and are likely to invite tenders," said Kumra, adding that, in future, Huda will supply one-third of water from sewage plants alone.
He added that another pipeline with a capacity of 10mld (million litres a day) for recycled water supply is to be laid, starting from the Behrampur STP.
