Old plant & water tankers to ensure water supply during the next two days
Reportedly, a senior official affirmed that the pump house of the 180MLD water treatment plants will be transferred to the new pipeline. Given that the new pipeline comes with a larger diameter, it can be expected that the water supply will be eased and enhanced over a vast expanse of residential areas.
