Water project debut

Sindri phase of the Rs 298 crore Dhanbad Water Supply Scheme is likely to be inaugurated by chief minister Hemant Soren on January 27.

Although no one from the district administration came on records to confirm it, speculations started doing the rounds when a team led by DC Prashant Kumar visited the intake well and pumping house at Chasnala and water treatment plant at Kandra to oversee preparations for the launch of the project.

“Final inspection of the facility is going on. More than three lakh residents of Sindri and its adjoining areas will get abundant supply of water once the project is launched,” Kumar said at Chasnala.

The elaborate infrastructure is aimed at supplying water from Damodar to various colliery areas of Dhanbad that are not covered under phases I and II of the scheme.

In phase III, two water treatment plants — one of 13.5 million litres in Sindri and another of 143 million litres in Jamadoba — have been established. Apart from this, there are two intake wells — one in Jamadoba of 181 million litres and another of 19 million litres in Sindri.

The Sindri part is complete, while work at Jamadoba is still on.
