Kathmandu, November 11
Preparations are underway to make arrangements for additional 10 million litres of water in the Kathmandu valley daily.
An alternative is going to be searched to address the drinking water shortage in the Kathmandu valley as it would take time to get water from the Melamchi project again.
Water sources available in the valley are going to be protected and more water is to be collected through deep boring at different places.
The KUKL Chief Executive Director Milan Shakya said that a plan has been made to distribute drinking water in the Kathmandu valley by mobilising sources until water from the Melamchi project is available.
Old tube-wells are being preserved for the same. Meanwhile, the KUKL is going to construct tube wells at 10 places in the Kathmandu valley.
There is a demand for 430 million litres of water in Kathmandu valley daily. The KUKL has been providing around 170 million litres during the rainy season and less than it during the winter season.
