The company deals in Water Treatment and Water Supply in Ahmedabad. Kotarpur Plant treats 650 MLD water and max. 750 MLD water accumulated form Narmada by gravity flow and from Sabarmati by pumping water. The water treatment plant at Kotarpur provides up to 80% of water demand of 1100 MLD consumption of Ahmadabad city and is largest water treatment plant in Asia till now. The main objective of the visit was to make students aware about the real dimensions and working of treatment units on site, techniques presently applied in water treatment & its practical performance.
