Sewer facilities for 200 villages soon: Sheila

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit announced on Saturday that her Government would soon provide sewer facilities in about 200 villages of the Capital to ensure facilities at par with the other approved colonies.

Laying the foundation stone of a new 58-lakh-litre capacity underground reservoir and booster pumping station at Narela, Ms. Dikshit, who is also Chairperson of the Delhi Jal Board, said the Board would construct 58 underground reservoirs by 2009, of which 28 would be in East Delhi.

Asserting that the Delhi Government was committed to providing drinking water supply to rural areas, she said a comprehensive plan had been chalked out for this purpose. “The Delhi Jal Board has commissioned a city-wide study with a planning perspective of 2011. This study had created a workable model to commission 109 reservoirs.

“This would go a long way in improving availability and ensuring pressure of water in various parts of Delhi,” she added.

East Delhi MP Sandeep Dikshit, local MLA Charan Singh Kandera, Councillor Sharad Chauhan and Delhi Jal Board Chief Executive Officer Arun Mathur were among those present at the function.

Ms. Dikshit said in order to rationalise water distribution in North Delhi, West Delhi, North-West Delhi, South-West Delhi and Central Delhi, 25 underground reservoir and booster pumping stations would be constructed at various locations.
