    The Municipal Administration department in Hyderabad is planning to build 25 new sewerage treatment plants (STPs) in addition to the 31 ongoing STPs. The goal is to treat 2,829 million liters per day of sewage at a cost of Rs 3,840 crore. This will make Hyderabad the first city in India to achieve 100% sewage treatment.

    Currently, the city has a capacity of 772 million liters per day. With a population of 46.8% of the State living in Hyderabad and a large amount of sewage being discharged, the State government decided to build the 31 existing STPs. These STPs are currently treating 1,259.5 million liters per day.

    The new STPs, along with the existing ones, will bring the total number of STPs in the city to 81. The projects scheduled for completion this year include 8 STPs in the north of Musi river, 6 STPs in the south of Musi river, and 17 STPs in the Kukatpally-HS Lake catchment areas.

    The State government plans to use the treated water for construction, landscaping, horticulture, and cooling thermal plants. In addition to sewage, the city also generates 6,000 tonnes of waste per day, which is now being processed separately.

    The government is focusing on three strategies: sewage treatment, effective management of run-off water, and solid waste management. The completion deadline for the STPs has been delayed multiple times, but now they are expected to be operational by August.
