The Corporate Resource Cell of Rai University organized a visit to 180 MLD CAPACITY SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT at Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation aims to fulfill the student goals and dreams in an efficient way to gain practical knowledge of the core projects and gain industrial skills which can complete the their education properly. The students of Diploma & B. Tech Civil Engineering Semester V & VII were the prime beneficiaries from this visit.
The sewage treatment plant, Pirana is India’s first largest sewage treatment plant which is based on fine bubble diffused aeration with PLC-SCADA auto operation system. The objective of sewage treatment plant are To Provide Treated Effluent, make the water free from odour, To Reduce Suspended Solids & BOD and to make the water effluent useful for irrigation. AMC ensures quality Water Supply to Citizens. It also provides disinfection Treatment through Gas Chlorination Plants (141 Nos.) at water Distribution Stations and Dozers (287 Nos.) at isolated bore-wells.
