Germany has set a target of making investments worth euro 125 million in sewerage treatment and management projects in Uttarakhand.
German Ambassador to India Martin Ney conveyed this to Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat during a meeting with him here, an official statement said.
"Germany is primarily keen on investing in setting up sewerage treatment and management plants in Haridwar and Rishikesh.
"Besides these two cities, Germany may also work on sewerage management in some parts of Dehradun," the release quoted the German ambassador as saying.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had advised him to consider investing in Uttarakhand during their last meeting, the diplomat said.
Ney also called on Governor K K Paul, who appreciated Germany's keenness on investing in Uttarakhand, saying the German experience in keeping the Rhine and Danube rivers clean would greatly help in rejuvenating the Ganga.
