`More Krishna water by 2006'

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, SEPT. 15. B.P. Acharya, Managing Director, Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board(HMWSSB), has said the board is supplying 36 mgd of Krishna water in the city.

This would be gradually increased to 90 mgd by December 2006 when the phase I of the project would be completed. He was speaking at stakeholders' meet held here on Wednesday to evolve strategies for development of water management systems for the city and surrounding areas. The meeting was convened by the HMWSSB and the B.M. Birla Science Centre.

There were problems of distribution to be addressed besides specific problems of smallscale industries which could not afford bulk rates.

It was time reuse of water for irrigation and industrial purpose should be given a serious thought. For this an efficient database would be of immense help, he said.

Case study

Mr. Acharya said the project proposed to develop an initial industrial module for Patancheru IDA as a case study. This could be later replicated elsewhere for general design of an integrated water management information system.

Representatives of farmers, industry and citizens were present at the meeting. The Hyderabad Water Management Information System (HyWaMIS) project is undertaken in association with the city of Modling, Austria and city of Venice.

Project completion

The project, which will be completed in January next, will form a transparent basis for decision making by authorities. It will enable scientific institution to access relevant information and provide the public general information on the current water situation.

Monika Schonerklee, a water management expert from Modling City, explained the project with the aid of slides.

Earlier, B.G. Sidharth, Director, Birla Science Museum, welcomed the gathering.
