Parks are recognized as effective tools for strengthening urban communities and local economies. Rising levels of population, increasing urbanization, and fast-moving industrialization have led to an overburdening of the wastewater problem in India.
In compliance with the National Green Tribunal’s directives to reduce groundwater depletion in Delhi and to halt further extraction of groundwater for gardening purposes, the DDA has focused on the use of treated wastewater for horticulture purposes.
The bore wells are currently used for horticulture in most public parks in Delhi maintained by civic bodies and the DDA. Previously, the Delhi Jal Board supplied treated water to various parks in Dwarka and South Delhi. However, the technical issues that arose proved to be inconvenient. DDA is now paving the way for the installation of its own decentralized STPs.
The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) has installed Daiki Axis Johkasou decentralized STPs throughout the city, which will supply treated water to the parks. Daiki Axis Johkasou decentralized STPs will recycle sewage water that could be used for park maintenance in an effort to increase Delhi’s green cover and conserve groundwater.
Daiki Axis Johkasou decentralized STPs will also aid in the revitalization of ponds and other bodies of water next to the DDA parks.
Daiki Axis Johkasou is impaneled by the government of India, Ministry of Jal Shakti, for Jal Jeevan and Swachh Bharat Mission. It has also won the first prize in ‘innovation in water technology by FICCI, and it is certified as GreenPro by CII.
Daiki Axis decentralized Johkasou STP is providing a commercially viable water resource recovery facility to resolve the water scarcity problem. Daiki Axis STPs are tried-and-tested solutions across the world. This not only helps Delhi in addressing its water scarcity, but also in attaining environmental, and sustainable development goals.
