Description Metro Manila water concessionaires announced plans to fast track their respective projects to further improve services in their franchise areas. East zone concessionaire Manila Water Co. Inc. said it will spend P115 billion more to complete its sewerage program by 2037. “Since 1997 when we took over the East Zone, we have spent P38.5 billion on our wastewater programs from collections of only P36.9 billion. So, we have excess investments of P1.6 billion and we expect this trend to continue,” Abelardo Basilio, Manila Water chief operating officer, said in a statement. To push the program, Basilio said Manila Water will need to lay about 500 kilometers more of pipes in public and private roads to capture wastewater from households and establishments in the east zone to convey to sewage treatment plants (STP) and ensure that wastewater released to Manila Bay complies with pollution control standards. He said the projects will be implemented in two or three phases; seven are set to commence until 2022 translating to an investment of P38.4 billion, while the rest will begin construction from 2023 onwards. The STPs to be built for these system projects are designed to cumulatively collect and treat up to almost 950 million liters per day (MLD) of wastewater from a population of 7.5 million in the east zone by 2037. Among ongoing wastewater infrastructure projects nearing completion is the Ilugin STP which will serve as the sub-catchment area of north and south Pasig, covering communities in and around Pasig City by 2020. “For most cases, Manila Water also acquires the land where the STPs are put up. Among the Metro Manila governments, Marikina is way ahead with an 80 percent coverage all spent for by Manila Water and mayor Marcy Teodoro wants 100 percent sewerage in the next two years. We will do that and that will make Marikina our model,” Basilio said. He added that Pasig mayor Vico Sotto also wants to fast track the city’s sewerage projects. To date, Manila Water operates 38 STPs and 2 septage treatment plants with a total capacity of 310 MLD. Manila Water serves customers in Makati, Pasig, Pateros, Marikina, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Taguig, some parts of Quezon City and Manila; and several towns in Rizal province including Taytay, Teresa, Angono, Antipolo, Baras, Binangonan, Cainta, San Mateo and Rodriguez. On the other hand, west zone concessionaire Maynilad Water Services Inc. is building a new pumping station and reservoir in Valenzuela City which will boost water pressure for over 50,000 customers. The new facility, to be constructed early next year and targeted for completion by 2021, will be equipped with high-efficiency pumps that can increase water pressure from the current 7 pounds per square inch (psi) to 16 psi in portions of Valenzuela and Quezon City. At 16 psi, water can reach the third floor of a house or establishment. The new reservoir will also have a storage capacity of 40 million liters, which can serve as additional reserve water for the area in case of supply shortfall or an increase in demand. “This project, along with our pipe replacement and rehabilitation initiatives to reduce water losses, is a critical component of our long-term plan to provide reliable services. It will help us to sustain service levels in the north, given increasing demand for water supply,” Ramoncito Fernandez, Maynilad president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. Maynilad is the largest private water concessionaire in the Philippines in terms of customer base, serving the cities of Manila, Quezon City, Makati, Caloocan, Pasay, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Valenzuela, Navotas and Malabon; the cities of Cavite, Bacoor and Imus and the towns of Kawit, Noveleta and Rosario that are all in Cavite.

Description The World Bank Board of Directors approved two loans totaling US$395 million to continue with the construction of sanitation infrastructure in the Matanza-Riachuelo river basin and to support Buenos Aires Province in the implementation of the social tariff for electricity. “With these loans, the World Bank is reaffirming its long-term commitment to Argentina supporting initiatives that improve the living conditions of vulnerable people. In difficult times, it is especially important to protect poor households by ensuring that families in need have access to affordable basic services, such as electricity,” said Jordan Schwartz, World Bank Director for Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. “At the same time, we continue to support the infrastructure works in the Matanza-Riachuelo river basin, the largest sanitation project in Latin America, which will reduce pollution and improve the quality of life of residents of the basin.” The Sustainable Development Project of the Matanza-Riachuelo River Basin will receive financing of US$245 million to complete construction of the sewer on the left bank of the river, the Rio de la Plata river sewer line and the Sudoeste sewage treatment plant. The project will also support other works to ensure that 50,000 vulnerable individuals in the basin can access basic water and sanitation services. The project Support to the Transition of the Social Tariff for Electricity in Buenos Aires Province, for US$ 150 million, will guide the transition of the subsidy from the national to the provincial level as well as improve the identification and monitoring of beneficiaries to guarantee that the most vulnerable population is covered. Currently, the social tariff reaches 1.4 million users in the province. One project objective is to complete the registration of 28 percent of users in Buenos Aires, or some 1.7 million people, to determine their eligibility for the social tariff program. The project will also implement energy efficiency measures and strengthen institutional capacities at the provincial level.

Description Chennai Metrowater will take up various projects in two phases to strengthen the sewer network and plug sewage discharge into the city waterways at a cost of ?2,371 crore. A government order, issued on Tuesday, sanctioned the projects for the works to be taken up by Chennai Metrowater along with Chennai Rivers Restoration Trust for the mitigation of sewage flow in the Cooum rivers and Buckingham canal. The water agency has chalked out both short-term and long-term strategies to arrest sewage outfalls and strengthen the sewer network in the city. It may be recalled that Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami had announced in the Assembly in July that the city waterways would be restored at a cost of ?2,371 crore and detailed project report would be prepared for eco-restoration of the waterways. According to the government order, the works would include strengthening of sewage pumping stations, enlargement of sewer pipelines and monitoring of the quality of the treated sewage discharged from the sewage treatment plants. Metrowater has now prepared detailed project reports for works worth ?1,001 crore that would be executed during the first phase. These will include construction of modular sewage treatment plants and intercepting and diverting raw sewage that will otherwise flow into the waterways and renovation of existing sewage pumping stations and treatment facilities. The 85 projects will be completed by December 2022. In the second phase, shortfalls in the sewer infrastructure will be improved. Sewer network from the collection system to conveyance pipeline will would be strengthened at a cost of ?1,370 crore. Roadside pumping station would be constructed to decentralise the system for which detailed project reports were under preparation, the order said.

Description L&T’s water and effluent treatment business is eyeing a slew of desalination and water treatment projects worth $1 billion in the country. The business, which is undertaken by L&T Construction in partnership with UAE-based Tecton Engineering and Construction, is seeing significant demand mostly from coastal regions. “Coastal regions in India from the South, the East and the North-West are looking at desalination plants as an option to reduce the stress on municipal corporations,” S Rajavel, Head of the Water and Effluent Treatment business, L&T, told BusinessLine. He, however, did not specify the time-frame of these expected projects. L&T is particularly upbeat about this business as it has been seeing some momentum recently. In the past couple of months, the firm has bagged two such orders. It bagged a contract for a desalination plant from the Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC). While it did not disclose the value of the contract, it said the order falls under the “significant” category which ranges between ?1,000 crore and ?2,500 crore as per the firm’s classification of contracts. Similarly, in June, L&T Construction bagged an EPC (engineering procurement construction) order from the Delhi Jal Board for the design, construction, installation, automation, testing, commissioning and O&M (operation and maintenance) of a 477 MLD (million litres per day) water treatment plant (WTP), a 105 ML clear-water reservoir, and a pump house for the Chandrawal command area. The project is part of the Delhi Water Supply Improvement Project and is funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency. Rajavel believes that many factors are contributing to this upsurge in water-treatment initiatives, which is a $2-billion business for the company at present. “Rising shortage of ground water, rapid urbanisation and expansion of industrial activities have all put a strain on municipal corporations’ ability to meet the water demand,” he said. With conventional surface-water sources drying up or disappearing over time and borewells getting deeper by the year, sourcing and supplying water have become uphill tasks for corporations and panchayats, he added. Also, L&T considers water resource management projects as one of its key growth areas, something which Chairman AM Naik outlined in the company’s recent annual report. Some State governments such as Tamil Nadu, Odisha and Gujarat have opted for setting up desalination plants to address water shortage. “From our interactions, States are exploring desalination plants on western coasts,” said Rajavel. Odisha has signed an MoU with Paradip Port Trust (PPT) and the National Institute of Ocean Technology for its first desalination plant with a capacity of 10 MLD. According to the International Desalination Association (IDA), there are around 18,426 desalination plants spread across 150 countries, touching around 300 million people. States are also looking at L&T as it has done similar projects abroad, particularly in West Asian countries such as the UAE, Oman and Qatar. As an example, Rajavel points to the completion of a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in the UAE along with its JV partner BESIX. The 375,000-cubic meters per day STP in Jebel Ali (Phase 2) claims to be the biggest in the UAE. However, some industry watchers have questioned the economic viability of desalination plants, terming it as expensive and not environmentally sustainable, as they are energy intensive.

Description Oman has committed to invest $7bn to advance the development of wastewater over the next 20 years. This investment is a part of its commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG6), which is one of the 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030, reported Oman Observer. A report by the Supreme Council for Planning (SCP) stated that 86% of the country’s total drinking water needs come from desalinated water, while groundwater caters to the remaining 14% requirement. Desalinated water output increased from 196 million m3 per day in 2011 to 311 million m3 per day by the end of 2018. The government has also planned to increase the investments in wastewater treatment and reuse. The report also mentioned that the sewage collection and disposal accounts for 98% of the urban population and around 97% of the rural population. Currently, the country has 68 wastewater plants, which produce about 94 million m3 per year of wastewater. About 60% of this water is used for refrigeration, agriculture and aesthetic afforestation. The SCP report stated: “Through the National Strategy for the Use of Tertiary-treated Wastewater 2040, Oman seeks to expand the construction of sewage treatment plants and extend sewage network lines at a cost of $7 billion, averaging $381 million per year.” Treatment and reuse of wastewater are expected to reduce groundwater pollution. The report further added: “In view of the current water shortage pressure estimated at about 128 per cent, the sultanate seeks to ensure sustainable freshwater availability and supply by 2030 by balancing supply and demand and expanding the use of non-conventional water resources (treated wastewater) currently used to replenish some coastal aquifers.” “Furthermore, by implementing water demand management (WDM) policies and changing cropping patterns and traditional irrigation systems, Oman aims to increase current water use efficiency, estimated at around $47 per cu m in 2018, with a focus on the agriculture sector, which is the largest water-consumer, accounting for 83 per cent of total uses,” it added.

Description Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal and Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat have laid the foundation stone for India’s largest sewage treatment plant (STP) at Okhla. The project will entail an investment of Rs 1,161 crore. The work for setting up the plant will be executed by France-based Suez Group and is expected to be completed in 42 months. Though the plant has a capacity of 124 MGD, it will not increase the total sewage treated by Delhi as it will be replacing the four existing plants in Okhla, which has the same combined capacity. The Delhi Jal Board is planning to release treated sewage back into Yamuna and then treat it again and supply it for drinking.

Description The Thiruvananthapuram Municipal Corporation has firmed up plans to revive the long-pending Attukal sewage project. The sewage project was first envisaged in 2009 under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM), connecting Attukal, Kalady, Ambalathara, Kalippankulam and Nedumcaud. Though the land acquisition for the same was completed back then, the project did not take off. As part of the project, pumping stations will come up at Kalady, Kalady South, Attukal and Kalladimukham, and the sewage line will be connected to the Muttathara sewage treatment plant. The Kerala Water Authority has been asked to prepare a detailed project report (DPR). It has also been decided to write to the Revenue Department regarding the survey and demarcation of the land acquired by the Corporation for the project. The survey is expected to be held on 20 May 2019.
