After prolonged delay and several futile exercises, Kochi’s infamous Brahmapuram waste treatment plant is finally looking to clear up the mess.
He added the report will contain an in-depth study on water pollution and solid waste management at Brahmapuram.
Although the officials admitted that the roof of the plant had collapsed, they demanded more scientific data on river pollution.
With frequent fires posing a threat at the Brahmapuram waste treatment plant, the Kochi corporation is gearing up to remove nearly five lakh cubic metres of legacy waste from the site.
Around 15 firefighting units from Thrikkakara, Pattimattom, Gandhinagar, Mattanchery, Tripunithura, Aluva and Club Road stations battled the fire.
The government will examine the option of depositing the silt on 10 acres of land that is lying vacant in Brahmapuram where the Corporation’s waste treatment plant is located.
