Awareness programme on sewerage scheme


Cochin Smart Mission Limited and Kochi Corporation jointly conducted an awareness campaign at Mattanchery on Saturday on the project ‘Construction of Vacuum Sewer Network and Sewerage Treatment Plant’ in Ernakulam wards 1 to 5, covering 10,000 households.

Under Smart Cities Mission of the Centre, Kochi intends to improve its waste-water management and sanitation, through a scientific sewage collection and treatment system. The sewerage scheme is proposed to be implemented in two phases. The total cost of the project for both phases is estimated at ₹166 crore, including five years of operation and maintenance.

Apart from 10,000 houses, the project will cover commercial establishments and the floating population in the West Kochi region. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
