KARACHI: The Sindh Industries Department, in collaboration with the Karachi Water and Sewerage Board, will establish five effluent treatment plants in Karachi at a cost of Rs18.143 billion, announced Sindh Industries and Commerce Minister Jam Ikramullah Dharejo.
Talking to a delegation of industrialists led by SITE Association president Salman Chawla at his office on Monday, Dharejo said that the treatment plants would be set up in SITE, Federal B Area, SITE Super Highway, Landhi/Korangi and Lyari.
