|DRINKING WATER TO URBAN AREAS|
The present quantum of water supply to the Angul Town is 2.90 MLD against the total demand of 3.22 MLD @ 100 Lpcd. Majority of the water supply comes from the Raniguda Water Tank. Presently, the water is being pressure-filtered after localized mixing of alum and somewhat chlorination through the bleaching powder. Besides, there are 14 production wells and 149 running hand pump tube wells (111 of PHD +32 sunk by the TADA + 6 sunk by the Municipality) to supplement the water supply to the town.
In the Talcher municipal area, against the water demand of 3.42 MLD @ 100 Lpcd, currently only 1.78 MLD water is being supplied. Out of the total 21 wards, only 14 wards are connected by the existing water supply system. Besides 72 tube wells are in operation.
In order to increase the water supply, the pumping hours of the water supply were increased from 18 to 20 hours at headworks during the summer.
The length of the riser pipes of requisite tube wells was extended to yield the adequate water from the hand pumps during the summer.
All the tube wells allotted has already been installed.
