Similarly, damaged portions of conduction lines of tubewells have also been repaired that has resulted in increase of water supply in different areas.
An official informed that they have successfully completed the repair work and now the water is being supplied to the residential sectors through this water treatment plant. “We have examined the quality of water and it is up to the mark.
The residents have also shown their satisfaction over restoration of supply of water that was suspended for quite some time,” he said.
