Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal inspected a water body in southwest Delhi's Rajokri area and said mini sewage treatment plants (STPs) will be built across the national capital.

Talking to reporters after the inspection, the chief minister said a walking track has been built around the water body in an eco-friendly manner and the government will soon make available swings for children and an open gym in the vicinity.

He said there are many slum colonies around the water body and all the dirt, mud, sewer of these settlements used to accumulate there, causing breeding of flies and mosquitoes in the entire area.

"The water body is now rejuvenated. A mini waste STP has been built which treats the generated waste water. Its daily-treating- capacity is 6 lakh liters (circa 600,000 Liters per day)," he said.
