Thursday, January 27, 2022

MP Pratap Simha and and Chamundeshwari MLA .G.T. Deve Gowda paid a visit to the Hale Unduwadi Drinking Water project, which is fast taking shape in the upstream of the KRS. The project is expected to cater to the needs of Myusru with a projected population of 50 lakh for the next 60 years.

MP Pratap Simha and urged the government to sanction ?545 crore for the project so that its implementation was not further delayed.

DPR for the project entailed an amount of ?545 crore against which the State Government has sanctioned ?350 crore in the first phase.

The existing drinking water projects catering to Mysuru are all located in the downstream of the dam and hence whenever there is a drought, it affects the drinking water supply to the city. But the current project is on the upstream of the dam and the jack wells will draw water even if the reservoir level is at 48 feet.

The project is expected to be ready by July 2023 and will ensure permanent supply of drinking water to Mysuru and surrounding regions.
