March 22, 2016: 22nd March is celebrated as World Water Day throughout the universe. The objective of this initiative is to make people aware of the importance of water and how as responsible human being we conserve it for our future generation. It’s a day to make a difference for the members of the global population who suffer from water related issues. It’s a day to prepare for how we manage water in the future. The theme for World Water Day 2016 is 'Water and Jobs'.

In our journey towards making Jamshedpur a safer, cleaner, greener and water wise city, JUSCO, in the last one year has implemented many projects to conserve and reuse water and waste water in town like:
- Surface water harvesting at Jubilee Park, SNTI and Few major Flat Complexes.
- Sub Surface drip irrigation System and Pop up sprinkler in Jubilee Park
- Recharge Pits to arrest storm water for in-house use
- Potable Sewage Treatment Plant (PSTP) to convert sewage into reusable water for irrigation and other purposes
- Geographical Information System (GIS) and SCADA System for real-time data analysis and corrective measures
- Automatic Sewage Pumping Station for online monitoring
- Waste Water recycling at Kharkai Sewage Treatment Plant; With this initiative about 40MLD water will be treated and recycled and used for horticulture –purposes and with this initiative
Jamshedpur will be closure to becoming a Zero Liquid Discharge City. This initiative will further result in reduction of about 10MGD water withdrawal from Subernarekha River.
