Water Plus City
Indore, the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh, recently became the first Â‘Water PlusÂ’ city in India. The status was accorded under the Swachh Survekshan survey for tapping the polluted water and preventing its flow into the rivers and other freshwater bodies in the region. Swachh Survekshan is an annual survey that assesses cleanliness, hygiene and sanitation in urban areas across the country.
To address the issue of water pollution in Indore, the administration had set up seven sewerage water treatment plants, around 5,600 domestic sewer connections and 1,700 public sewer links. The city currently reuses around 110 million litres of treated water every day.
