Kathmandu, March 11
With the water from Melamchi arriving in Kathmandu, the capital residents would surely get water at their households as the Kathmandu Upatyaka Khanepani Limited (KUKL) has made a plan to distribute drinking water from the fourth week of March.
The ongoing tunnel test, however, may take an additional two to three months to complete the entire task.
The KUKL In-charge Milan Shakya shares the testing of the water processing centre would be undertaken after the completion of the tunnel test. Then, water will be channelised to both new and old ponds after the completion of the test of the centre.
As informed, the water channelised to the new ponds would be used to test supply pipes and the old ponds water would be sent to the system.
“The water channelised to the old ponds would be distributed to the people through old pipes,” he says.
In addition, the water would be channelised to newly-constructed nine ponds and already-established six ponds for the distribution of Melamchi water in the Kathmandu valley.
