Kathmandu, June 12

Kathmandu Mayor Balen Shah has proposed constructing a soak pit at every house and a reserve boring system in every ward to solve the perpetual drinking water crisis in the city.

During the city government‘s second executive meeting on Sunday morning, the mayor floated his proposal.

If the proposal can be endorsed and implemented, the status of Kathmandu’s groundwater storage will improve helping solve the water crisis, he said.

In addition, it will also help address the problem of roads turning flooded with rainwater, according to him.

Shah said he believes this thing can be done within one year.

Meanwhile, the city government also established 12 thematic committees to deal with various problems of the capital on Sunday.
