About the Project
Government of India, has approved the Namami Gange program as an integrated approach for effective abatement of pollution in river Ganga. As part of this and to ensure that no untreated domestic sewage flow into the river Ganga, various interventions are planned such as Interception & Diversion works and development & operation of Sewage Treatment Plants(STPs). Considering various development models in practice for the construction, operation and maintenance of Sewage Treatment Plants, Government of India has approved the Hybrid Annuity based Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode as one of the options for the development & operation of STPs. Under this model, private investor/developer will design, build, finance, operate and transfer the asset (STP) to the Project Executing Agency/Jal Nigam/Jal Sansthan/Urban Local body at the end of the Concession Period (say 15 years).
Overview of the city
Haridwar is an ancient city . Haridwar is regarded as one of the seven holy cities of India which can provide Moksha. According to the Samudra manthan, Haridwar is one of four sites where drops of Amrit, the elixir of immortality, accidentally spilled over from the pitcher while being carried by the celestial bird Garuda. This is manifested in the Kumbha Mela, which is celebrated every 12 years in Haridwar. The earliest known archaeological evidence have proved that terra cotta culture dating between 1700 BCE and 1200 BCE existed in this region. Today, the city is developing beyond its religious importance, with the fast developing industrial estate of SIDCUL, and the close by township of BHEL as well as its affiliated ancillaries. It is situated on the bank of river Ganga in the state of Uttarakhand
