Half pipeline network has been laid

GOA: On Friday, the Union ministry of jal shakti announced that Goa became the first state in India to cover 100% of its 2.3 lakh rural households with functional household tap connections. CM Pramod Sawant basked in the laurel, while PWD minister Deepak Pauskar said the achievement earned Goa additional funds to set up water treatment plants in every taluka.

“It is a long-pending problem in this area,” he said. “This area has been without water supply since Goa’s Liberation. Our target was to provide piped water supply to Ambeudok and surrounding areas by May 2020. But the work got held up due to the lockdown and resulting labour shortage. Now, our aim is to provide piped supply to the area by December, or latest by January 2021.”

He said that under the JICA project, work on two overhead water tanks has been completed, while that on a third is currently in progress. JICA refers to the Japan International Cooperation Agency, which funds some water-related projects executed by the government. “Half the pipeline network has been laid in the area,” the sarpanch said.
