The water and effluent treatment business of L&T Construction has secured a slew of orders from state governments of Punjab, Odisha and Uttar Pradesh.

The department of water supply and sanitation, Punjab, has awarded two EPC orders for the bulk supply of treated water to 10 lakh people across 412 villages in the Fazilka and Ferozepur districts of Punjab on a DBOT (Design Build Operate Transfer) basis.

“The aggregate scope of work comprises design and construction of raw water intake systems, storage and sedimentation tanks, water treatment plants of a total capacity of 114 MLD, clear water reservoirs with pumphouse, supply and laying of transmission pipelines, and associated electromechanical and instrumentation works,” the company said.

“The project also involves automation works that include measurement of inflow and outflow water quantity and quality through suitable SCADA and other instrumentation works,” it added.

Previously, the business commissioned the Moga Water Supply Project for the same department.

The water resources department, the Government of Odisha, has given a repeat EPC order to execute the underground pipeline irrigation system for the Rengali right irrigation project (Phase-I).

Under the project, water for irrigation to 24,063 hectares of Culturable Command Area (CCA) and 26,334 hectares of Command Area Development (CAD) is envisaged for the Dhenkanal and Cuttack districts of Odisha by way of gravity flow taken from the Rengali Right Bank Canal and its distributaries.

“The scope includes survey, design, procurement, construction and installation of DI, HDPE & PSC pipelines of various diameters and pipeline distribution networks with all allied works,” the company said.

In addition to these, the company has also secured add-on orders from the Uttar Pradesh State Water and Sanitation Mission to implement various rural water supply projects under the Jal Jeevan Mission to provide functional house tap connections in the state.

The company is already executing water supply schemes in Mahoba, Banda, Chitrakoot, Gonda, Varanasi, Sonbhadra, Balrampur and Shravasti in Uttar Pradesh.
