A said a new filter house is a priority . He dont have a clorination house we use it from Neura . The standing old Filter house is filtering 80% of water he added. We falls under GTA and have to send estimate for fund sanction. We are running out of staff. we dont have a standing fund. Despite facing shortage we are distributing the water. He have applied for additional staff.The 6 crore fund which the department has received from Municipal affair department will be used to repair the delo civil lake 1 , augmentation of water from relli to thuckchuk work , and pumping from relli to thukchuk.
