CM KCR conducts review meeting over dedicated drinking water reservoir for Greater Hyderabad
Honourable Chief Minister Sri K Chandrashekhar Rao has instructed the officials concerned to construct a dedicated drinking water reservoir for Greater Hyderabad to mitigate the drinking water problem and to put an end to the drinking water crisis forever in the twin cities. The CM suggested that Godavari water from Mallanna Sagar and Konda Pochamma Reservoirs should be supplied to fill up the proposed Reservoir whenever it is required and from time to time. He also instructed the Irrigation, RWS officers to immediately prepare estimates on the proposed Reservoir, pipes etc., after having a joint meeting. The CM also instructed that every household within the ORR should be given drinking water connection.

The CM held a review meeting on Monday at Pragati Bhavan on having a dedicated Reservoir to supply drinking water to the Hyderabad City. Minister Sri Malla Reddy, MLA Mrs Sabita Indrareddy, Government Chief Advisor Sri Rajiv Sharma, Principal Secretary Sri Narsing Rao, Principal Secretary (Municipal) Arvind Kumar, GHMC Commissioner Sri Dana Kishore, Commissioner (Endowments) Sri Anil Kumar, Medchel Collector Sri MV Reddy and others participated.

“As on date, we are diverting water from Krishna and Godavari Rivers from a far away distance to Hyderabad. Despite this, these are not fulfilling the drinking water needs of people in Hyderabad. This should not happen in future. Mallanna Sagar and Konda Pochampally reservoirs are getting water from the Kaleswaram project. The government has issued orders allocating 10 per cent of the water for the drinking water purposes. Hence, from these two reservoirs drinking water should be supplied to Hyderabad. Construct a reservoir and water treatment plant at Kesavaram. From here drinking water should be supplied to the city. For this prepare the estimates forthwith. While diverting water from Krishna and Godavari rivers, construct the reservoir simultaneously,” the CM instructed.
