Hyderabad Water Board develops plans to meet summer demand with focus on Ramzan

At a review meeting on Tuesday, Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) managing director Dana Kishore announced the Summer Action Plan 2023 to meet the water requirements of the city and the surrounding villages.

In the city, 565 Million Gallons of Water (MGD) are currently supplied daily, and an additional 42 Million Gallons of Water (MGD) will be supplied by the end of May.

Among the additional 42 MGD, 22 MGD will be distributed within the city limits, and 20 MGD will be distributed within the Outer Ring Road (ORR).

Considering the upcoming Ramzan month, he instructed the officials to prepare special arrangements to supply water tankers to mosques throughout the city.

To resolve the sewage overflow issue in these areas, he asked the officials to allocate mini-jetting machines in each division.

According to HMWS&SB, the water supply proposed through ORR phase-2 will be completed by June.

In accordance with the Annual Maintenance System (AMS), the managing director Kishore instructed the officials to check whether the bore wells are working properly and make any necessary repairs.

Even before the summer season has begun, the demand for water tankers has already picked up its pace.

Tanker bookings have increased significantly in Banjara Hills, Jubilee Hills, Somajiguda, SR Nagar, Kukatpally, Quthbullapur, Malkajgiri, LB Nagar, Madhapur, Charminar, Chandrayangutta and Mehdipatnam.

On average, HMWS&SB is reportedly receiving 150 to 200 requests each day and books 50-100 tankers per day that are delivered within 48 hours.
