KATHMANDU, NOVEMBER 11
Kathmandu Upatyaka Khanepani Limited (KUKL) is preparing to make arrangement for additional 10 million litres of water per day for use in Kathmandu Valley.
Chief Executive Director of KUKL, Milan Shakya said that a plan has been made to distribute drinking water in Kathmandu Valley by mobilizing sources until water from the Melamchi project is available.
Old tube-wells are being preserved for the same.
He said that drinking water would be distributed by making some changes in schedule once the quantity of water increases.
Service recipients of some of the places of Kathmandu Valley are complaining about not getting drinking water.
Shakya shared that arrangement of drinking water would be made for them by filling public water tanks from tankers.
The KUKL is going to construct tube-well at 10 different places in Kathmandu Valley. Additional 10 million litres of water would be added in the existing quantity of water from deep tube-well and water sources.
There is a demand for 430 million litres of water in Kathmandu Valley daily. The KUKL has been providing around 170 million litres during rainy season and less than that during the winter season.
With the beginning of winter season, around eight to nine million litres of water is being distributed by KUKL daily.
