JICA assistance to Pune river cleanup project

Tags: Economics/Business

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.
