These STPs are part of the sewage construction projects undertaken by the Indian government to clean up the Ganges River.

The Ganges River runs for approximately 2,700 km through the center of India.

Covering 860,000 km2, its basin is populated by more than 600 million people.

The Ganges River is therefore essential for drinking, household, and irrigation water.

However, the Ganges River is threatened by pollution and the Indian government announced an action plan to clean up the river in 2015.

As part of this action plan, TWS constructed four Sewage Treatment Plants in Jharkhand and in Uttar Pradesh.
