  • (1888PressRelease) January 17, 2015 - Through this initiative, Ireo aims to extend its support to government's "Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan" and help addressing the sewage and water contamination issues of the area.

    Currently, Ghata Village is severely impacted due to absence of a proper sewerage system which is connected to the Municipal sewage system. This poses a serious health risk and makes residents vulnerable to a host of air borne and water borne diseases.

    Ireo has taken several advocacy outreach drives for sensitizing the local community on linkage between health and sanitation. These workshops were instrumental in imbibing healthy behavior practices amongst the residents and ensuring the sustainability of sanitation facilities. As part of these workshops, dustbins were installed at various locations in the village and are currently used by the villagers for the waste disposal.

    Applauding Ireo's efforts, Satish, a local resident of Ghata village said, "We are troubled as the waste water from the kitchens and bathrooms of the village runs in open drains and accumulates in the low lying areas. IREO's initiative to set up an STP plan will help us address a long standing issues leading to healthy environment for us and for the future of our children."

    The proposed STP plant by Ireo will have a capacity of 200 KLD (with the possibility of expansion if needed in future) and will be built on the MBBR (Moving Bed Bio-film Reactor) technology, which is a proven technology for waste water treatment. This process will not require any human intervention. The treated water from this plant will be used for horticultural and other developmental purposes in surrounding areas, thereby, reducing the load on the strained water supply requirements in the region. Ireo will fund the set-up as well as take care of the regular operations and maintenance of the sewage treatment plant, expected to be operational by April 2015

    Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Ramesh Sanka, CEO at Ireo said, "Ireo regularly undertakes community initiatives under "Swach Jeevan, Swasth Jeevan" program aiming at empowering and improving quality of life around our projects. This initiative showcases our commitment towards the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan run by the honorable Prime Minister. The Sewage Treatment plant is a significant step towards conservation of water and care for environment and will also improve the health and well being of the locals residing in the adjoining areas".
