Eco-friendly sewage treatment plant inaugurated in Mathura



Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh on Friday inaugurated an eco-friendly sewage treatment plant of 75,000 liters capacity here, developed by the Indian Agricultural Research Institute (IARI) using indigenous technology.

The treated water would be used for irrigation and help in reducing health risks by 44 to 58 per cent, a release said.

"Wastewater (sewage water) will be recycled at the plant and will be reused for irrigation. This treatment will reduce 75 to 85 per cent heavy metal pollution from the wastewater and such treated water is used for irrigation," the release said. - IANS
