Chattogram WASA takes measures to ensure water supply

CHATTOGRAM, May 20, 2018 (BSS) - Chattogram Water and Sewerage Authority (CWASA) has taken various steps to ensure uninterrupted water supply to city dwellers during holy month of Ramadan. To ensure smooth water supply during the Ramadan, the CWASA has already set up a number of tube wells with a daily production capacity of two million litres of water side by side repairing a few inoperative ones.

Besides, the CWASA authority has also decided to open control rooms, form vigilance teams and supply free water in different slum areas in the city.

Currently, CWASA produces 29 crore litres of water per day against the demand of 45 crore litres which is insufficient in meeting the growing demands of nearly 60 lakh city dwellers for domestic, commercial and industrial consumption, a top official of CWASA told BSS.

CWASA Managing Director Engineer AKM Fazlullah told BSS that they have formed three vigilance teams to monitor different establishments of the CWASA during the holy month.

The vigilance teams started to visit different slum areas to mitigate the sufferings of people, he added.

"Moreover, we have kept our teams ready for providing immediate solution to the water supply problems at any place of the city", he added.
