An 11-lakh litre capacity semi-underground reservoir and a booster pumping station will be inaugurated on Sunday in a pocket of Tollygunge on the southern fringes of Kolkata that suffers from water shortage, officials of Kolkata Municipal Corporation, have said. 

A senior KMC official said the reservoir-cum-booster pumping station would benefit residents of Ward no. 97 that cover areas like Ashok Nagar, Regent Park and Kudghat. Most of the residents of these areas depend on underground water drawn up through pumps. “Potable water will be supplied from the Garden Reach water treatment plant to these areas now.”

The Telegraph has reported several times in the past how several pockets of Kasba, Jadavpur, Kasba and areas off the EM Bypass have to depend on underground water raised from below through deep tube wells.
