YSR to inaugurate; STP at Mir Alam Tank too to be opened

HYDERABAD: The municipal administrative machinery of Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (HUDA), Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB) and MCH are gearing up for Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy's visit to city on Sunday.

Dr. Reddy is scheduled to inaugurate the Imlibun Park, the newly built sewerage treatment plant at Mir Alam Tank and also lay the foundation stone for a multi-purpose sports complex in Chandulal Baradari.

The MCH had taken up construction of the Imlibun Park transforming the area, once a garbage dump on the Musi riverbed, into a verdant spot with flowering plants, jogging track, children's play area, cafeteria and the likes.

Spread over nine acres it has been built at a cost of Rs. 3.5 crore and is touted to be the biggest in the old city. The Water Board has laid underground sewer lines to keep the surroundings clean.

The proposed Chandulal Baradari's sports complex will have facilities for playing badminton, table tennis, carom, gymnasium and swimming and is likely to cost Rs. 3.25 crores.

HUDA had built the STP for the highly polluted Mir Alam Tank at a cost of Rs.25 crores. Trial runs for the 10 MLD plant have been completed so as to treat sewage from nearby colonies.

After water is treated to permissible standards it would be let out into the lake to maintain the water balance and quality. A 7-kilometre long ring bund has been laid over the 334 acre water spread along with a green walk-way. Birds' park, cafeteria and boating dock are to be developed in its three islands.
