JICA assistance to Pune river cleanup project
Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has approved the tendering process for a Rs 1,000-crore project for cleaning up Pune’s rivers, Mula, Mutha and Mula-Mutha (confluence of both rivers). The project to clean up the mula-mutha has been delayed due to issues of land acquisition and objection to the project.
The Mula and Mutha rivers are heavily polluted with the city’s sewage being dumped into the rivers.
The project aims at improving the water quality by augmenting sewage collection systems and sewage treatment facilities in Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) area.
The funding would go in for construction of sewer lines, pumping stations and treatment plants for treatment of the sewage before its discharge into the Mula, Mutha and Mula-Mutha rivers.
