River Ganga Action Plan for “National Mission for Clean Ganga by 2020

Blue print for innovative solutions in waste & sewerage management.

The River Ganga Action plan for National Mission for Clean Ganga by 2020 is a prestigious project and TCE's solutions relates to the stretch of the river Ganges at Allahabad and Kanpur. The features recommended are novel ideas for a typical sewerage system -

Recommendations for use of existing large size sewers by various internal lining methods

Considering Trenchless method for difficult open excavation in congested lanes of old city

Use of precast RCC manholes in congested lanes for quick installation

Reduced the cost of road restoration work by 30% through strategic way (top width of road cut plus 30cm on both sides and reinstatement of CC/Bituminous/BOE roads based on actual road length as per survey details)

De-silting of existing sewers in Kanpur for reuse which brought about 80% cost savings

Survey of existing large size sewers (mains) by opening manholes and relevant observations; About 25-30% cost reduction was achieved by rehabilitation of existing sewers with internal lining method

Detailed cost estimation for sewage treatment plant (STP) units based on preliminary design

Preparation of tender for STP on DBO basis with alternate treatment technologies - stringent review and approval by international experts

Social and Environmental Study for the sewerage project and financial analysis and tariff study for the entire project

TCE documents reviewed by NRCD, World Bank, FASEP, NGRBA, IIT Roorkee, GPCU-UPJN-Lucknow and approved in the steering committee meeting at Delhi

TCE provided technological and innovative solutions in various areas which saved capital cost, prevented pollution during execution, saved energy costs, ensured faster construction and execution harnessing project delays and the pollution of Ganga River. Several safety measures were adopted and resource conservation measures during construction and in O&M while implementing sewerage scheme, conservation of water for use of dewatered sludge, treated water etc. The project activity was undertaken with no hindrance to the general public.
