Indirapuram: Upset over the current state of sewage treatment plant (STP) at Indirapuram, a committee from National Green Tribunal instructed the water corporation and the municipal corporation to upgrade the STP.
The direction came after the NGT committee and former chief secretary Anoop Chandra Pandey inspected the sewage treatment plant in Indirapuram on Friday evening. Pandey was disappointed at the use of outdated technology in the STP to treat sewage water.
