With there being no hope in sight for getting additional water supply, the Municipal Corporation is making attempts to find solutions to the problem of low water pressure in summers. A committee has been constituted to study the deficiencies in the current system and suggest better management practices.
The first meeting of the committee was held on Thursday. More problems are faced in the southern sectors during summers due to the presence of a large number of multistorey houses. The residents on the upper storeys receive low pressure water. The committee is looking at ways to divert some water from the northern sectors where the population is less to the southern sectors with high population density.
Discussions were held with officials who have been associated with water supply for a long time. It was decided that old plans of the water supply pipelines would be dug out to know the presence of the pipelines and valves.
Superintending Engineer (Public Health) R C Diwan says, "The committee will be holding at least a meeting a week and within a month's time, the measures that are required to deal with the problem of low water pressure in summers will be chalked out. Efforts are being made to ensure better water management."
The MC has received the approval for upgrading the water works in Sector 52 that would ensure better supply in the southern sectors. Recently approval was received for the sites where underground water reservoirs will be installed. The sites have been improved in Sectors 29 C, 31 D, 39 B, 46 C, 47 A, and 48 C.
