The much delayed Sherkhi water works of Vadodara Municipal Corporation to draw drinking water from a Narmada branch canal is likely to become operational soon with the civic body clearing a proposal to pay Rs 3.75 crore to Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Limited (SSNNL).
The VMC standing committee has approved a proposal of water supply (projects) department seeking to deposit the amount with SSNNL, the special state government entity which is handing the Narmada project. The proposal states that SSNNL has arrived at the deposit amount by fixing price of water at Rs 50,000 per lakh litre. VMC is to draw 75 million litre water per day (mld) from Vadodara-Bharuch branch canal of Narmada.
The project is to supply water to Harinagar, Gotri and Kalali areas, which get water from Mahi river.
