The board has put on sale 710 million litres of grey water per day at Rs 100 to Rs 130 for 5,000 litres. The water can be used for constructions and to water gardens, among others. The railways and RTC can use the grey water to wash their vehicles. With few people buying the water, it is mainly being used by the Water Board itself and the GHMC for roadside greenery. The Water Board had launched an initiative to sell treated sewage water to improve its revenues. “The treated water is preferably for construction, irrigation and gardening.
