NEW DELHI: The Lake Rohini project in northwest Delhi is expected to be completed within the next eight months and will be commissioned within a month of completion. The lake is one of 23 bodies of water that the Delhi government is trying to rejuvenate. The lake area will be developed into a scenic tourist spot that can serve as a source of recreation for visitors, the government said.
Water Minister and Delhi Jal Board Chairman Satyendar Jain visited the lake, which is in Sector 25, Rohini, on Saturday to review the progress of various units being constructed. “Visited Rohini STP where huge lakes and green spaces spread over 80 acres are being built. A total of 8 lakes will receive 68 MLD of treated water from STP. This will help recharge groundwater. Arvind Kejriwal’s government plans to develop it as a recreational adobe,” Jain tweeted later.
The government said in a statement that the project is largely based on sewage treatment and lake development. Rohini Lake, with the STP, is located in a 100-acre land complex where the sewage treatment plant occupies 20 acres while lakes and green spaces are being developed on 80 acres, he said. .
The wastewater will be treated in the 15 MGD capacity treatment plant and the treated effluent will be further refined using appropriate treatment technologies, after which it will be discharged into the lake. Completion of the project will ensure the improvement of underground aquifers, benefiting the ecological growth of the region, the government said.
Once the project is completed, the lake will also include a main pedestrian, secondary pedestrian and a jungle path with a 4.5 meter path that will cross the middle of the lake. The government will plant a large number of trees under the project, which will also have facilities such as parking lots, a cafeteria, a children’s park, an entrance plaza, a large bleacher plaza, etc.
Along with this, a stepped water garden, water alcoves and an open-air museum that will tell the story of water harvesting in India will also be set up at the lake site, the government said. . Avenues of Rohini Lake could be used by people for picnics, outings, morning and evening walks, exercise, sports, sightseeing and recreation, he added.
“The lake project has been designated as a key project and relevant officials have been requested to complete it on time,” the government said.
