The Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar district administration will implement the ‘Jalsamruddhi Gaon Abhiyan’ from June 5 to make all the villages in the district tanker free. Presently, water is supplied to various villages through tankers due to the acute water shortage. In such villages, the water refilling and water harvesting projects will be implemented under the scheme. The rain water will be refilled in the well, borewells and other water sources.
