EM Bypass flats will get filtered water soon
Buoyed by the warm response to its pilot project on piping filtered water to some apartment complexes, Kolkata Municipal Corporation has decided to lay a dedicated water pipeline to supply filtered water from the Dhapa plant to all major complexes along EM Bypass.
In the first phase, KMC will lay a 24-inch pipeline along EM Bypass, which will be linked to all major housing complexes. In the second phase, based on applications from the cooperative societies, the civic body will install water meters in these apartments.
Mayor Sovan Chatterjee said that the civic body would definitely supply filtered water to the major housing complexes along the EM Bypass as part of a plan to ban drawing of ground water.
“We need to supply filtered water to the multistoried buildings and housing complexes. This is necessary to save city’s groundwater from being depleted,” he said.
