Nature of Work:

There exists a water purification plant with a capacity of 535 million litres per day at Parvati, Sr. No. 121 and 122. From the said water purification plant, water is predominantly supplied to the centralized area of Pune city and vicinity of S.N.D.T. and Chaturshringi areas. The water purification plant in the Cantonment with a capacity of 360 million litres per day is about 125 years old and the life of the old tanks have mostly come to an end and hence, it is of utmost importance that the said water purification plant be rebuilt. This water purification plant is within the limits of the Cantonment and there is no place available next to the existing water purification plant to build a new water purification plant, and there is no possibility of getting any land in the Cantonment area. Hence, an alternative arrangement needs to be looked upon.

Quotations have been invited for an amount of Rs. 17,906 lakhs (approved project cost + repairs and maintenance cost) for the construction of a water purification plant with a capacity of 500 million litres per day, construction of a clear water pumping station and recycling plant next to the existing water purification plant in Parvati, Pune, to make a plan for all this work, to construct, to test-run it, to operationalize it successfully, and to run it with repairs and maintenance for the next 5 years. From among the quotations  received, the quotation of contractor, M/s. Degrimont Ltd., who submitted the lowest of all quotations, of an amount of Rs. 1,61,10,00,000/-, has been approved as per R. No. 2103 dated 13/1/14 of the Hon. Standing Committee. Accordingly, an work order as per Outward No. 2017, dated 07.02.14 has been given to the contractor, M/s. Degrimont Ltd. The duration for the said work is 30 months plus 5 years for repairs and maintenance.

Proposed scheme of the new project and benefits from the Project : 

It has been planned to construct a new water purification plant of a capacity of 500 million litres per day at Parvati by demolishing the existing water purificatio plant of a capacity of 360 million litres per day at Cantonment. The existing water purification plant at Parvati  is nearly 40 years old and as some parts of it needs repairs on a large scale, it has been planned that if Step / Stage no. 1 from the said plant is demolished, the remaining 200 MLD capacity can be used as an alternative source for this part. While the old water purification plant with the capacity of 360 million litres per day situated in Cantonment is being completely demolished and rebuilt, it is possible to supply water from the proposed water purification plant.

For the said water station, a provision of taking water from the raw water, with a diameter of 2,500 mm, that has been laid from Khadakwasla dam up to the Parvati water station and also from a line of 1500 mm diameter from the raw water of Parvati water station has been made. M/s. Shah Technical Consultants are working as technical consultants for the said work.

The main units within the Project :

It includes construction of the said proposed water purification plant of a capacity of 500 million litres per day, to build a pure water sump well, to construct a recycling plant etc.
