washing the engines.
Divisional railway manager Sanjay Tripathi of Lucknow division (NR) said, “After the installation of water recycling plant, the diesel locomotive shed has made tremendous improvements in the usage of water.

The project was introduced by senior divisional mechanical engineer Anand Kishore Tiwari.
Some part of the recycled water is also used in watering the green plants and trees in the railways vicinity.
