Ministers launch drinking water project works in Namakkal

Works on the Rs. 185.24 crore Namakkal Municipality new drinking water development scheme was launched here on Sunday.

State Ministers P. Thangamani (Electricity) and V.Saroja (Social Welfare) participated in the function held on Paramathi Road here.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Thangamani said that drinking water was supplied to the residents of 39 wards in Namakkal municipality through three separate schemes with River Cauvery at Mohanur as source.

Under the new drinking water development scheme, a collector well will be constructed in River Cauvery at Jedarpalayam.

The water from the well will be pumped to the treatment plant proposed at Kabilarkurichi and the purified water will be pumped to the 9.15 lakh litre capacity ground level water tank at Thummankurichi.

The water will be later pumped to nine over-head tanks that will be constructed in Namakkal town for regular supply to the town residents. The completion of this project will permanently solve the drinking water problem in this town, Mr. Thangamani said.

M. Asia Mariam, District Collector, presided over the function. The Ministers on the occasion honoured Saravanan, correspondent of Green Park School, and Asokan, correspondent of the Kurinji Public School, for donating eight acres of land for the construction of treatment plant at Kabilakurichi.
