Rajkot Municipal Corporation to augment water treatment capacity

The Rajkot Municipal Corporation plans to augment its water treatment capacity by 100 million litres per day (mld). The municipal corporation is likely to commission a 50 mld water treatment plant (WTP) in Raiyadhar by the end of May 2022. Another WTP of the same capacity, at GETCO Chowkadi, is likely to become operational by December 2022. These two new WTPs will make treated water available in areas that have been brought under the jurisdiction of the municipal corporation in recent years.
