Door-To-Door Drinking Water Delivery In Remote City Areas

Jun 22, 2020 | News

Mysuru/Mysore : The Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) and its water supply wing Vani Vilas Water Works (VVWW) are ready with a project to supply door-to-door drinking water and also to levy pending water tax through Digitalised Point of Sale equipment. For this purpose, eight dedicated vehicles have been modified and readied.

A few areas in the city face perennial drinking water problem and there is neither a scope of establishing RO (Reverse Osmosis) plants nor supplying water daily as the roads are very narrow. Areas like Udayagiri, Shanthinagar, Kalyanagiri, Rajivnagar, Lingambudhipalya, Nachanahallipalya and surroundings of J.P. Nagar face perpetual drinking water problem.

Though the MCC supplies water to certain areas, the huge water supply vehicles could not reach the tail-end consumers due to bad and narrow lanes. Also, there are no designated places for the MCC to set up RO plants like they have established in other areas despite huge demand.

To ease the problem, the MCC has customized six Tata Ace Mega vehicles and have mounted mini RO plants on them. Each vehicle can carry 1,000 litres of pure drinking water to any nook and corner of Mysuru city and even criss-cross in the narrow lanes and bylanes. Door-to-door drinking water delivery is achieved through these vehicles and people can fill water to their containers at homes.
