Works on sewage treatment plant at Ondipudur to begin soon

The much delayed sewage treatment plant proposed at Ondipudur as part of the ongoing under ground drainage system overseen by the city municipal corporation will eventually be realised.

The civic body is expected to complete the exercise of land acquisition from private land holders and has so far acquired about 13 acres of land. The documentation of about one acre of land is expected to be completed soon, out of the total 14.4 acre of land identified to set up the plant. The delay in documentation is due to some internal dispute among private land owners who have already given their consent in principal to hand over the property to the civic body.

"The land acquisition for the sewage treatment plant in Ondipudur is on the verge of completion. These land holdings now belong to Coimbatore Corporation and the remaining procedural work to set up the sewage treatment plant will be initiated in soon," said a senior corporation official.
The city corporation had decided to come up with a sewage treatment plant as part of its underground drainage project being implemented under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission scheme. The civic body had identified 14.4 acre of land which belonged to various private individuals along the banks of Noyyal river in Itteri near Ondipudur. Officials claimed that the total compensation disbursed to the land owners amounted to about Rs 13 crore.
"The entire process was smooth and now the corporation will erect proper fencing and also earmark the site location before construction begins," said a corporation employee. The proposed plant at Ondipudur is expected to have 60 mld capacity at an estimated cost of Rs 51.2 crore with sequence batch reactor treatment facility.
