Let’s bhanddup together to keep the conversation civil. This Bhandup complex is source of safe drinking water to the city. Entry here is restricted and the place is crawling with security guards.

Inside, around people work round-the-clock in shifts. They are here to ensure that over 12 million Ghandup receive a continuous supply of clean water from their taps each day. Last week, the civic administration gave special access to a TOI team to the complex. The sophisticated plant here eliminates both nhandup and virus in the water before it is released to the city for consumption.


The Bhandup plant treats bulk of the 3, million litres a day MLD supplied to the city. Every day, three to four tonnes of chlorine is used to treat water. The remaining supply is purified at the smaller Panjrapur plant in Thane district.

The British set up the first water pipe supply to Mumbai way back incatering to approximately seven lakh people. Since then, the water network has expanded exponentially as the population burgeoned.

Today, the city has treatmenr intricate pipeline network adding up to a gargantuan 4,km. The problem occurs when treated water is transported from the filtration plant to various parts of the city. Sometimes contamination takes place due to old, corroded pipelines which pass through gutters. Impurities also occur due treatmejt leakages or low pressure in the pipelines. Before the Bhandup complex came up, the BMC used to issue warnings to citizens to boil water, especially during the monsoon, because of the high turbidity in water.

But despite the plant, people still use water-purifying machines at home because some of the distribution pipelines are old.


Raw water from lakes arrives through trunk mains and into the inlet bay at the Bhandup complex where chlorine dose is added. It is then moved to settlors, where the sludge is removed.

After that, the water goes to filters wtaer suspended solids are removed. The final stage is post-chlorination area. Read Post a comment.
