New Delhi, 2015.10.28 (KNN) The Ministry of Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation has sought for transaction advisory support team towards a public-private partnership (PPP) for Mathura-Vrindavan waste water treatment and reuse.
This pilot project is expected to demonstrate the use of PPP in river cleaning, waste water treatment and reuse in Mathura and Vrindavan, which could then potentially be replicated in other parts of the country.
The TAS (Tata Administrative Services) team will advise on the financial and commercial, and PPP structuring aspects of the project; provide assistance in preparing the PPP transaction; support the identification of private developer through a competitive and transparent bid process and draft commercial contracts for wastewater treatment and its offtake.
The cities of Mathura and Vrindavan have been selected as a demonstration project as the size of these cities presents an ideal opportunity for relatively faster implementation and replication of learning to other cities and towns. These cities are important religious and cultural centres, have a combined population of about 6 lakhs, and have some basic sewage collection and treatment infrastructure, with expansion plans for the near to medium term.
The scope of work includes actual measurements of flows, discharge in the drains, nallahs for dry weather conditions using advance methods and spatial distribution of flows; aolid waste generation and ghats infrastructure; improvements to wastewater collection and treatment systems; demand assessment for treated wastewater and willingness to pay survey; wastewater R\reuse design; cost assessment; environmental and social impact assessments and financial analysis among others.
