Construction of sewerage treatment system under way at Gadakana. The civic body has selected a private partner for execution of the plants. He said work on the first sewerage treatment plant at Kalinga Nagar had also been expedited, while efforts were on to complete the sewer line work by March next year. "Septage needs to be treated properly to avoid contamination of drinking water, pollution of river water and soil. It is a good move of the civic body to set up such plants," said environmentalist Sailabala Padhi.
