Residents of Yelahanka Old Town and nearby areas now have a reason to cheer. They no longer need to depend on borewell and private water tankers.

The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) had, on September 30, commissioned the feeder lines of Cauvery Stage IV Phase II, and will shortly start supply of Cauvery water to the areas that will augment the city’s water supply of 900 million litres per day (mld) by 500 mld. The BWSSB, in a release, said that water supply will be provided to Yelahanka Old Town, Attur Layout, Sanjeevininagar coming under Ward Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 7 of Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike.

Residents of these areas may apply through simplified application forms and obtain water connections.

They may submit the application forms along with relevant documents to the water supply sub-division at Yelahanka.

The release said that the work of commissioning of feeder mains and sub-feeder lines in the areas of other old CMC areas under BBMP is on and is likely to be completed within next 15 days. Details may be obtained from BWSSB website, www.bwssb.org.
