Rajkot to get regular water supply from July 30

Rajkot city is all set to get regular water supply from July 30 after having received alternate day supply for nearly two months.

Rajkot city is all set to get regular water supply from July 30 after having received alternate day supply for nearly two months. The local administration decided to resume the daily supply following fresh inflow in various reservoirs.

“From Thursday,the city will get water supply for 20 minutes daily,” said Mayor Sandhya Vyas after an assessment meeting with Rajkot Municipal Corporation (RMC) engineers on Monday.

Except Aji-I Dam,all other reservouirs supplying drinking water to the city have registered fresh inflow,which can be expected to last for the next one year.

Aji,which has not registered significant fresh inflow,will be kept on reserve. The RMC plans to rely more on the Narmada water supply through Maliya canal of the Sardar Sarovar Nigam Limited.

Similarly,Nyari-I,which is overflowing with 22 feet and 945 MCFT water,is expected to last for a year.

Nyari-II has also received enough water to last a year. The Lalpari Lake,another water source for Rajkot city,is also overflowing with the water level reaching 14 feet.
