51 tankers supply drinking water to 114 Nashik villages

  • | Saturday | 22nd May, 2021

The administration has deployed 18 tankers for 48 villages in Yeola taluka, seven for 14 villages in Peth, six for 11 villages in Chandwad, five each in Baglan and Surgana and the remaining three for the other five talukas.  

With summer at its peak, the district administration has pressed into service 51 tankers for supplying drinking water to 114 villages across 10 talukas.

Out of the 51 tankers, 44 are private and the maximum amount of water is being supplied to the villages in Yeola taluka that falls in the northern and eastern areas of the parched region of the district, receiving scanty rainfall across the year. The other talukas of the region where water is being supplied via tankers include Chandwad, Deola, Malegaon, Baglan, Nandgaon, Niphad, and Sinnar.

Sinnar taluka required the highest number of tankers during the summer for the past four years, but this year it has cut down its dependency due to a large number of water conservation methods through Jalyukt Shivar and Paani Foundation being carried out there.

The parched regions of Yeola, Nandgaon, Chandwad, Deola, Malegaon, and Baglan talukas and hilly regions in Trimbak, Peth, Surgana, and Igatpuri talukas are getting water through tankers. The talukas in hilly areas receive very heavy rainfall during the monsoon and have a large number of water storage dams. But the water runs down the hills to the plains and people living on the top are left without any major arrangement of the water storage facility.
