SALEM: Salem Corporation has started laying a distribution pipeline to ensure adequate supply of drinking water to Pavendar Street and a few other residential colonies in Ward 27 here on Tuesday.
The work was taken up following repeated complaints from the people in Pavendar Street that their area lacked proper drinking water supply provision.
They claimed that the Corporation was not able to ensure adequate supply of water with the existing provision.
People were forced to fetch water from distant locations.
As a result, the Corporation had sanctioned a sum of Rs. 3.7 lakh to lay additional pipeline to Pavendar Street and a few neighbouring colonies.
Officials said that water would be supplied once in three days from the Sreerangapalayam overhead tank.
The laying of pipeline would be completed within this month and supply would commence in the first week of December.
