The Tamil Nadu state government is planning to set up combined effluent treatment plants for textile dyeing units in Erode, Salem, Namakkal, Komarapalayam and Karur. Tamil Nadu Water Investment Company (TWIC) is preparing a feasibility report for the project and will be submitted to the state government soon. The project will get 50 per cent grant from the Central Government and 25 per cent grant from the State Government. The industries will invest the remaining 25 per cent and also purchase land for the plant. Land has been identified in most places for this purpose.
