New STP at Kundalahalli Lake

A new sewage treatment plant (STP) has been installed near Kundalahalli Lake in Whitefield  under a joint venture between General Electric (GE) and the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP).

The plant can treat about 280 KLD of sewage. "GE volunteers noticed that there were many inlets which need to be treated and which will prevent further pollution of the lake," said Munesh Makhija, CEO, GE India Technology Centre, and CTO – GE South Asia.

He added that water level of the lake had increased by six inches in the past 8-10 months which, in turn, had improved the local flora and fauna.  GE and United Way will also build  six eco-friendly toilets, including one for the differently abled, at the lake.
