The pending Water Supply Improvement Scheme (WSIS) of Trichy Corporation to supply potable water through pipelines for added corporation areas has received administrative sanction from the Public Works Department.
The added area from ward 61 to 65 falling under Ariyamangalam and Ponmalai zones often witness water shortage during summer.
On completion of the scheme, at least 90,000 people in five wards would get water daily.While a small portion of the added area receives potable water through pipes so far, the major localities are supplied water through trucks that fill as many as 167 water tanks.
Even as the demand of five wards in added area stands at 15 MLD, the proposed project could supply a maximum of 27 MLD water.
To address the disparity, Trichy Corporation with a financial assistance from German Development Bank proposed a project to supply potable water in the area.
