*Mayor starts Project to strengthen Water Supply in Maloya*

For Detailed

*Chandigarh, March 14:-* Aiming at improving infrastructure and ensuring ample water supply for the city’s residents, City Mayor Sh. Kuldeep Kumar has started the project work of laying a new water supply pipeline from Water Works Sector-39 to Village Maloya in the presence of Area Councillor Smt. Nirmala Devi and other prominent persons of area

In a programme held at Green Park, near bus stand, village Maloya, the Mayor expressed his commitment to ensuring that every resident has access to reliable water supply, which is essential for their well-being and quality of life. He said that the primary objective of this project is addressing the low water pressure issue in Maloya colony.

He said that the existing cast iron (CI) water supply line, which has been in use for approximately 40 years and passes through the challenging terrain of the jungle area behind Snehalaya, is prone to frequent cracks and repairs. Given the difficulties in maintaining and repairing this line, urgent replacement with a new ductile iron (DI) water supply line has become necessary to prevent water scarcity and disruptions, especially during the summer season, the Mayor said.

MC Commissioner Ms. Anindita Mitra, IAS, emphasized the significance of improving water infrastructure for the growth and development of the community and assured their dedication to seeing this project through to completion.

She said that with the declining water table levels in existing tube wells, the future water supply in Maloya is expected to rely more heavily on canal water. Therefore, the project includes provisions for laying 10″, 6″, and 4″ i/d D.I. pipelines, CI/DI specials, sluice valves, non-return valves (NRV), connections to the existing water supply network, and other necessary civil works. The estimated cost of the project is approximately Rs. 68.35 Lakhs and will be completed by next month.
