Message from the CEO
Dear all,

You may by now know all about ELCITA’s Solid Waste Management initiatives. But have you wondered about the sewage and wastewater generated here? Electronics City generates 6000 Kilolitres of wastewater every day; but unfortunately only 52% of it is treated and reused. Refuse-Reduce-Reuse-Recycle is the Mantra to conserve water which is in short supply.

Industries with wastewater treatment units must maintain it to get the desired quality of treated water and reuse it. Those companies that do not have a treatment unit, have to be very careful about wastewater disposal.  According to estimates, 750 KL of wastewater is dumped on open land and into nearby water bodies every day. Seepage of untreated water is likely to be the cause of higher nitrate levels in ground water extracted from borewells in Electronics City.

Industries who have arrangements with private vendors for wastewater disposal need to double check if it is being disposed of in a correct way.

Spending money on treating the wastewater and reusing the treated water will give great returns in terms of a better place to live and reducing our angst about water shortage and health hazards.

ELCITA has established a 300 KLD common Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) at ELCIA Park. The STP has started operating and the treated water is being used inside the estate for watering plants and other needs of companies.

I request industries to make use of the ELCITA STP and manage wastewater responsibly. Our focus is not just about the service we provide to our members, we believe we have a broader role to play in enhancing liveability and protecting the environment for a better future.

I am sure you are a responsible ELCitizen interested in recycling wastewater the right way and ELCITA can support you to do that. Let us lead by example!

I came from Bihar to Bangalore four months back. My wife and kids are still in Bihar. I was working as a technician in Airtel, in Bihar. I had to leave that job for some reasons and was sitting jobless at home for quite a long time. Some of my friends were here in Bangalore working at their own shops. They called me so that I could visit Bangalore for a change as I was depressed.

I came here and started helping my friends in their shops, at that time I started learning how to run a shop. Just one ago back I decided to have my own shop here in Electronics City. Everyday I come from Hosa Road to Electronic City at 10 o'clock in the morning and leave by 11 p.m. I like this place because the temperature here is very cool, it is less noisier than the other parts of Bangalore and there is a lot of greenery around. A lot of educated people come here and they talk very nicely to me. I miss my family and I’m planning to visit them soon.
