Black & Veatch will be involved in designing a modern WWTF to mitigate coastal pollution. Further environmental benefits will be achieved through water reuse; wastewater will be treated for non-potable applications, reducing the stress on Mumbai’s water resources. As part of the project, Black & Veatch will assess the possibility of using space at five satellite pumping stations - at Gorai, Vallabh Nagar, Charkop, Shimpoli, Goregaon and Malad IPS - for WWTFs, as an alternative to creating a single, large WWTF at Malad. This approach would simplify distribution from the water reuse facilities. One of the reasons for the project is compliance to new discharge standards revised by the Central Pollution Control Board. “Black & Veatch’s global capability in dealing with complex wastewater treatment problems, including experience in sludge digestion and water reuse helped significantly in qualifying for the project. Having a local team of highly skilled water engineers and understanding of the local delivery model also benefited.” Anand Pattani, Vice President, Managing Director, India, Black & Veatch Black & Veatch has a legacy, lasting more than two decades, of successfully executing projects for MCGM.

Energy Planning Offers Efficiency, Cost Savings, Resilience Down the Road As energy costs continue to rise and more states adopt regulatory incentives and disincentives that drive large-scale sustainability and efficiency efforts, it is expected that utilities will become more aggressive in their approach to managing energy. Technology, Trading Offer Opportunity for Managing Nutrient Discharge Nutrient pollution and the resulting excess of nutrients in waterbodies continues to plague aquatic environments around the world, threatening waterways, fish and plant life – and even public health. The runoff of phosphate and nitrogen from farming, stormwater, wastewater treatment plant discharges and other sources into waterbodies continues to unbalance ecosystems, resulting in toxic algal blooms and hypoxic dead zones.
