In 2002, the Indian government set up the Tirupur Water Supply and Sewerage (TWSS) project to support businesses in Tirupur, India’s leading cotton knitwear export region. Textiles depend heavily on a reliable, high-quality water supply, so meticulous management of water infrastructure and treatment processes is critical. We formed Mahindra Water Utilities in order to fill this important and high-responsibility role.
We manage the fresh water supply and waste water collection and treatment for residences and cotton knitwear factories in and around Tirupur. Each day, we extract up to 185 million liters of raw water from the River Cauvery, then treat, store, and distribute it 24x7 to textile factories and homes. We also manage domestic waste water and treatment, with a capacity of 15 million liters per day.
The government stepped in to construct a key public good in a strategic economic area; we work tirelessly to operate it at the highest standard. Our project management expertise is raising the living standards of the inhabitants of Tirupur and surrounding villages and enabling the economic vibrancy that supports their livelihoods.
