Although the city spent 600 billion rupees on the sewage system in Meerut, it did not remove the waterlogging. Wastewater from the city flows on the streets instead of reaching the Jagriti Vihar sewage treatment plant. Jalnigam has not even started sewer in the Kamela zone. The sewage treatment plant is operated with the water from the Odeon drain. Waterlogging occurs in light rain.The sewer line was laid by spending approximately Rs 500 crore under the JNNURM program. At the same time, a sewage treatment plant with 72 MLD was installed in Jagriti Vihar, which currently only receives 32 MLD wastewater. The rest of the sewer system is supposed to lead the system from the Odeon drain.

The project should be completed in 2020, excavations are now under way
