Plant to supply drinking water to residents of ward 41

A reverse osmosis plant, an overhead tank, and a gasifier crematorium will be inaugurated in the town on Friday. The reverse osmosis plant is to supply drinking water to the residents of ward 41.

Though the municipality had set up a mini power pump, the pH level was not up to the standard. Hence, the municipality set up the plant for making it potable, said S.A.S. Sait, municipal chairman (in-charge).

An overhead tank with a capacity of two lakh litres at Adappanvayal caters to the needs of ward 7, 8 and 9.

The supply of drinking water under the Cauvery Combined Water Scheme to these wards would be augmented, he said.

The tank was constructed at an estimate of Rs. 26 lakh under the general funds and the MLA constituency area development fund.

Though the municipality had constructed a gasifier crematorium at a cost of Rs. 49 lakh at Bose Nagar about a couple of years ago, it was not inaugurated for want of additional facilities.

New facilities, including toilets, garden, and a hall, have been provided at an expenditure of Rs. 24 lakh.

N. Subramanian, Minister for Adi Dravidar Welfare, and C. Vijayabaskar, Minister for Health, would declare open the facilities.
