Bhopal, May 11 (ANI): Madhya Pradesh’s Urban Administration Department has sanctioned a 50-lakh-rupees scheme to make the Narmada river pollution free.
The plan, prepared by Public Health Engineering (PHE) Department, requires laying down of sewage line at Narmada’s origin in Amarkantak.
A 1.5 km long sewage line is proposed to be laid in the town, and waste water generated in the city would be treated in a plant.
This will help in preventing it (waste disposal) from mixing in Narmada at its origin, the official sources said.
The plan was presented to the state’s Urban Administration Minister Babulal Gaur during his recent visit to the holy town.
Gaur has also directed officials to clean septic tanks of hotels, houses and hostels with the help of suction machines, the sources said. (ANI)
