Pimpri, 14th November 2023: In a recent tweet by Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation Commissioner Shekhar Singh on ‘X’, it was highlighted that the state-of-the-art Dust Suppression Fog machines and Road Washers/Sprinklers introduced by PCMC are exclusively utilizing treated and recycled water sourced from Sewage Treatment Plants (STPs). Importantly, the tweet emphasized that neither drinking water nor groundwater will be used in these machines.

These cutting-edge machines, which have been operational for the past week, have demonstrated their efficacy in actively reducing particulate and dust pollution, contributing to a significant improvement in the overall air quality across the city.

The Dust Suppression Fog Cannons derive their water supply from tertiary treated water sourced from Chikhali STP, ensuring a sustainable and environmentally conscious approach to dust suppression. Similarly, the Road Washers and Sprinklers make use of treated water from various STPs across the PCMC region, further emphasizing the commitment to water conservation.
