GPS MONITORING FOR B’NGIR WATER SUPPLY THIS MONTH
Monday, 04 April 2016 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
Balangir town water supply distribution system will be monitored through GPS network from April first week. Movement of water tankers will be tracked effectively by a GPS enabled tracking system keeping minimal scope for laxity.
This was decided at a meeting between Housing and Urban Development Minister Puspendra Singh Deo and Bolangir MP Kalikesh Singh Deo and RS MP AU Singh Deo on March 31.
The two MPs discussed the problem of water scarcity with Minister and requested for better water supply provision for Bolangir town. It was informed in the meeting that 146 PVC tanks and 41 RCC tanks have been installed at different scarcity points of the town. 26 water tankers are filling up these storage tanks every day. The MPs were assured that more number of RCC tanks and 50 more tube wells will be installed soon. The control rooms have been activated for effective monitoring of water supply. Mobile teams have been set up for immediate repairing of hand pumps.
The Tarava Water Supply Project will be completed in a few months and will be commissioned by September this year, the Minister assured. This will solve the water problem in Balangir town to a great extent.
