DINDIGUL: Even as Dindigul receives 10 million litres of water a day, (MLD) as per the supply register, people get water only once in 15 days. No one, including officials, could not explain where and how the civic body distributes the 10 MLD of water. The total water requirement of Dindigul is 21 MLD only.
With the existing supply, the municipality can distribute water to all residential areas once in two days. “I have been asking this question to these officials since my first tenure. I did not get an answer even in my third tenure,” said K. Balabarathi, MLA, after inspecting Athoor dam, the main drinking water source to Dindigul, on Friday.
Talking to media persons after inspecting the dam, she said that poor maintenance of dam, malfunctioning of motors, paralysed distribution system and inaction of officials were some of the reasons for the erratic supply.
