  • Cleaning and re-sectioning of river Bharalu.
  • Construction of a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) of Capacity_85.5 MLD (considering the flow of the ultimate year 2050) near Ulubari fish feed farm using Sequential Batch Reactor (SBR) Technology for River Bharalu.
  • Although the River Bahini is not in the preview of ADB projects, essentially an integral part of Bharalu river system hence some measures for arresting dry weather flow suggested.
  • Interceptor pipe drains along the river Bharalu to collect the sewage from either side of the river.
