There was no drinking water problem in Thanjavur Municipal area and 30 million litres per day is supplied from Vennar and Thirumanur pumping stations and from local sources like borewells, said Kamaraj, Municipal Engineer, here on Wednesday.

Replying to Irai Karkuzhali, councillor, who raised the issue of drinking water and wanted to know how much water is supplied, Mr. Kamaraj said that the present supply is sufficient for the municipality and in fact per capita supply in Thanjavur is more than water supplied in other municipalities.
