New housing to reuse water

Mumbai municipality readies norms for wastewater from kitchens

future housing projects in Mumbai would need to have grey water recycling plants to treat wastewater from kitchen, washing clothes and bathing. The treated water is to be used for horticulture and other non-drinking purposes. The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai drafted guidelines that would mandate developers to install such recycling plants in housing projects with over 1,858 sq metres built-up area.
