CHANDIGARH: After bringing relief to southern sectors of the city, now residents of the northern sectors too have a reason to cheer as tertiary treated water will be available in the area for non-potable purposes like gardening, washing cars, etc.
 
According to the engineering wing of the Chandigarh municipal corporation the new underground reserve water tank, for supplying non-potable water, will be commissioned from Saturday. The residents of the area have been informed about the development and the charges have also been kept nominal to make the facility popular among residents.
 
According to the information provided, the authorities have already laid down pipelines of tertiary treated water in all the parts of the northern sectors. The concerned executive engineers and sub-division officers of the MC's engineering wing have been given clear instructions to make efforts to give maximum tertiary treated water connections to the residents.
 
Mukesh Bassi, chairman of water supply committee of the MC, said, "Supply of tertiary treated water will automatically minimize the scarcity of potable water in the city."
 
R C Diwan, superintending engineer of the MC, said, "We have been educating people about the benefits of using tertiary treated water. The rates have also been kept nominal - for a kanal house the charges will be Rs 50 per month. Also in a bid to make things easy for residents, the sub-division offices in all sectors have been provided the necessary information to start the facility."
