Khandwa (Madhya Pradesh): Local MLA Devendra Verma held a meeting with municipal officials on water supply arrangements on Saturday.
“Water distribution has been disrupted due to accumulation of silt near intake well located at Charkheda of Narmada Water Supply Scheme. Therefore, water should be supplied from Sukta Jaswadi and Nagchun ponds and from tube wells and tankers,” Verma said during the meeting.
He said drinking water should be made available in every area after talking to former corporators of respective municipal wards. The replacement of Narmada water pipeline is under process and it is being ensured that 12 MLD to 15 MLD of water is availed instead of 5 MLD from Sukta Jaswadi.
Simultaneously, steps will be taken to upgrade Nagchun pond. With help of Narmada Valley Development Authority, water will be brought to Nagchun pond and drinking water will be supplied throughout the year from it. For this, a new filter plant has been proposed.
District BJP president Sewadas Patel said drinking water shortage surfaces in summer season, which municipal officials and public representatives should address.
Deputy municipal commissioner Dinesh Mishra shared action plan on water distribution through tankers and sought cooperation of all the public representatives.
