Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is setting up 5 more sewage treatment plants (STP) to supply water to gardens at Nagpur. Each garden requires 15,000 to 25,000 Litres water per day. A lot of tap water was used daily for watering plants and keeping the premises clean. Water from bore wells and dug wells were also used in gardens. Nagpur Municipal Corporation is planning to set up 5 more STP’s to meet daily water requirements of the gardens. This will not only treat sewage and reduce water pollution but also save valuable drinking water and ground water.

Nagpur which was named after Nag river has turned down the glory of river to a nullah. What was once pride of city now stinks and is full of garbage. Previously fresh water used to flow through it and now only sewage water and industrial pollutants.
Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is not taking any steps due to lack of funds and have approached National River Conservation Plan (NRCP) to release funds for cleaning the river. The proposal has been submitted and results are awaited.
