East And West Ahmedabad Sewerage Project




Ahmedabad is the 7th largest city in India with a present population of 5.5 Million which is likely to be 11 Million by 2021. The Municipal Corporation Area (until 2006) admeasuring 192 sq km has 95% coverage in terms of sewage network. In 2006 an additional 258 sq km area was added to the Municipal Corporation limits. In newly added areas, the New west zone area covering 134 sq km has a sewerage network coverage in about 40 sq km area whereas the new east zone area covering 32 sq km does not have any coverage in terms of sewage network. The present population in the area is about 2.4 Million and likely to increase to 3.3 Million by 2025. Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation. Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation alongwith Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority is implementing a project for Sewerage collection, treatment and disposal for this newly added areas. This project is funded under the Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission (JnNURM) of the Govt of India. The project components are listed below :


For East Ahmedabad

  • Sewerage Network – 233 Km Length – Concrete Pipes
  • Terminal Sewage Pumping Station at Vinzol – 102 Mld Capacity
  • Sewage Treatment Plant at Vinzol – 70 Mld Capacity


For West Ahmedabad

Sewerage Network – 467 Km Length – Concrete Pipes

  • Intermediate Pumping Stations at Bhat and Chandkheda
  • Terminal Sewage Pumping Station at Vasna – 285 Mld Capacity
  • Sewage Treatment Plant at Vasna – 240 Mld Capacity



The project is under implementation and likely to be commissioned in phases from 2010 to 2012.

180 MLD Sewerage Treatment Plant At Pirana




East Ahmedabad is mainly an industrial area. It is a rapidly developing side of the city. With the population of Ahmedabad projected to be 11 million by 2021 AD, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation decided to extend its sewerage system. Hence MMCPL was employed to design a 180mld capacity STP( Sewage Treatment Plant) in Pirana area. MMCPL was involved in preparing detailed project report, getting approval from JnNURM , preparation of tender document, proof checking of designs provided by EPC contractors and overall management of project.

The STP is based on Activated Sludge Process with fine bubble diffused aeration system. By providing treatment, facility pollution caused due to disposal of untreated sewage in River Sabarmati will be stopped and wastewater will be used for irrigation. It is India’s first STP with PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) SCADA ( Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition) system with auto operation. The STP is capable to generate about 1.2. MW electricity by providing additional Biogas Engine System, which is self sufficient to make the STP “energy-free”.


As a result of the work done by MMCPL,  Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has prioritized the implementation of project and commissioned the project.

66 MLD Sewerage Treatment Plant At Atladra




Vadodara is the third largest city of Gujarat with a population of 1.6 million. To accelerate economic growth the government visualized ‘Balancing economic opportunity and quality of life’. As a part of improving infrastructure, the Vadodra Municipal Corporation increased the capacity of the current sewerage system at Ataladra to provide sewerage service to 90 % of the population and 100 % stoppage of raw sewage overflow from manholes, pipes, etc. in open. The Sewage used to be collected from Drainage Zone III of all area to the West of river Vishwamitri and treated at Ataladara Sewage Treatment Plant then being disposed off in river Vishwamitri. To improve performance a new sewage treatment plant to treat 43 mLd average flow (Peak factor = 2.0) and based on Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) process has been set up and commissioned on EPC basis under JnNURM Programme

MMCPL prepared a detailed report for complete design of treatment plant and bio-gas based 330 KWE (0.3MW) capacity Power Generation Plant using Gas Engines. The services included design and preparation of working drawings for process, civil & structural, piping, mechanical, electrical and instrumentation works including PLC based Monitoring controls of treatment /power plant.


As a result of MMCPL, the sewerage plant was constructed effectively. Vadodara Municipal Corporation was able to facilitate effective treatment in a better way.
