KHULNA, Jan 6, 2019 (BSS) – The Bottled Water Treatment Plant (BWTP) of
Khulna Water and Sewerage Authority (KWASA) will be launched in next month.

Khulna Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (KWASA) will start selling
bottled water in February.

The water named “Sundarban” a safe drinking water, will go on experimental
production this month, a KWASA official said.

“The Bottle Water Treatment Plant (BWTP) will go into experimental
production this month and commercial production next February,” the official
said.

KWASA sources said 95 percent work on the plant being built in the city’s
Mujgunni area has been completed and remain works would be completed by
middle of January, 2019.

The sources said the plant will produce over 6 thousand liters of safe
water everyday and earn huge revenue. It would help the Khulna WASA to become
a profitable organization.

With a view to supplying safe drinking water to the city dwellers, the
KWASA took the initiative of setting up the plant on a 14-acre plot in 2016.
The estimated cost of the government financed project was fixed at Taka 20
crore.

Talking to BSS, project manager of BWTP and also superintendent engineer of
Khulna WASA Khan Selim Ahmed said the project would run commercially. The
bottled water produced by the plant will be sold at a price cheaper than
private companies.
