Water crisis to continue for 3 yrs
April 27, 2012, Deccan Chronicle, Hyderabad

Citizens of the peripheral areas in Hyderabad will continue to suffer drinking water shortage for at least two more years due to a delay in the implementation of the Krishna Phase-III, as the state government has sanctioned a meagre Rs 30 crore for execution of the Rs 1,670 crore project.

The Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board has little money to take up works on the Krishna Phase-III, and the Water Board is already mortgaging its properties to raise loans for the execution of the Godavari drinking water project for Hyderabad city. Experts say that the Krishna Phase-III drinking water project can be completed in less than 12 months, and that the city can get an additional 90 MGD water. (మరింత…)
