Special team to monitor water supply

Special team to monitor water supply

The officers will inspect areas allotted to them, interact with area officers and sort out issues among residents. They will also visit service stations at 6 am and during supply hours, to verify, monitor and co-ordinate with all the sectors of the maintenance wing of the water board, and attend to complaints effectively.

A water supply time table, along with a valve operation time table and records of each valve operation, will be available at the service station. The officers will ensure equal distribution of water in their areas.

They will also verify complaints recorded at the service station, check water supply in the area and inspect areas from where repeated complaints are received. Besides, the officers will monitor water supply through tankers in dry areas.

The Chairman of the Board will conduct a random inspection of the water distribution system.

Kuvempunagar parched

Kuvempunagar (Ward 11), where a water inspector was beaten up last week by agitated residents, is yet to receive water supply. At a meeting of area corporators and BBMP officials, held at the BWSSB office on Monday, valvemen from the BBMP were appointed to monitor water supply.

“Despite an attack on a water inspector, the BWSSB has not taken any serious action to ensure water supply to the ward. Instead, the BBMP has appointed a few valvemen, who will start working from Tuesday,” said Krishnappa, husband of corporator Yashodamma.

BWSSB assistant executive engineer Narasanna said there were already 14 valvemen for Kuvempunagar, but the residents were demanding more.
