    Capacity of sewage treatment of the Indirapuram Sewage Treatment Plant - 1 (STP) in Ghaziabad. Constructed at a cost of Rs 143 crore, the plant has been facing operational issues and allegedly discharging untreated water into river Hindon, and is now in the process of revival. As of end of 2019, the STP is being managed by VA Tech Wabag under the ‘one city, one operator’ scheme. According to SK Singh, Project Manager from VA Tech Wabag, the STP was not properly treating sewage from the Sahibabad drain. Equipment was replaced in Sep 2020 and it is likely to achieve the quality benchmark (of biochemical oxygen demand of less than 10 mg/litre) as a result.
