Water Supply and Sanitation in Muni Ki Reti

Muni Ki Reti is a modern township, which is also a popular place of pilgrimage. The town also serves as the gateway for the Char Dham Yatra.  Consequently, in addition to its static population of around 12000 people (2011 Census) it also has a floating population of around 1000 people per day. Consequently, water supply and sanitation is a big issue in this town. However, Muni Ki Reti Nagar Panchayat along with Government of Uttarakhand has taken every measure to provide adequate water supply to the citizens and visitors alike.

Improving Sanitation in Muni Ki Reti

Recently, the Government of Uttarakhand has taken up a sanitation project under Uttarakhand PeyJal Sansadhan Vikas Evam Nirman Nigam. Its main aim was to cover those areas of Muni Ki Reti and Dhalwla, which did not have sewer lines. In those areas, waste water was discharged into nearby drains and was ultimately carried untreated into River Ganges. The blue print of the project was as follows:
  • Provide new sewer lines in areas not covered by it
  • Replace the hydraulically insufficient/damaged sewer lines
  • Provide treatment facilities for the waste water before its final discharge.

Muni Ki Reti already has a Sewage Pumping Station, built in1986. However, with the increase in population, the project proposes to build two more such plants in Muni Ki Reti and Dhalwla area. In addition, a Sewage Treatment Plant is also being built in 14 Bigha Area. It will also cover both Dhawala and Muni Ki Reti.
