Black & Veatch expands wastewater project in India

Black & Veatch will help the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) enhance the environment by expanding wastewater treatment facilities (WWTF) in the city. Black & Veatch will undertake a feasibility study, and prepare a detailed project report and tender document, for the proposed 847 million litres per day Malad Zone WWTF.
“Black & Veatch’s global capability in dealing with complex wastewater treatment problems, including experience in sludge digestion and water reuse helped significantly in qualifying for the project. Having a local team of highly skilled water engineers and understanding of the local delivery model also benefited,” said Anand Pattani, Vice President, Managing Director, India, Black & Veatch.
Black & Veatch will be involved in designing a modern WWTF to mitigate coastal pollution. Further environmental benefits will be achieved through water reuse; wastewater will be treated for non-potable applications, reducing the stress on Mumbai’s water resources. As part of the project, Black & Veatch will assess the possibility of using space at five satellite pumping stations – at Gorai, Vallabh Nagar, Charkop, Shimpoli, Goregaon and Malad IPS – for WWTFs, as an alternative to creating a single, large WWTF at Malad. This approach would simplify distribution from the water reuse facilities.
