Construct dedicated drinking water reservoir Greater Hyderabad: KCR

Vastavam web: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao has instructed officials to construct a dedicated drinking water reservoir for Greater Hyderabad at Keshavaram Shameerpet mandal to put an end to the drinking water crisis of the twin cities. The CM suggested that Godavari water from Mallanna Sagar and Konda Pochamma reservoirs should be supplied to fill up the proposed reservoir whenever it is required.

The CM also instructed that every household within the Outer Ring Road should be given drinking water connection. “As on date, we are diverting water from Krishna and Godavari from a faraway distance to Hyderabad.

Mallanna Sagar and Konda Pochampally reservoirs are getting water from the Kaleswaram project. Hence, water from these two reservoirs should be supplied to Hyderabad. Construct a reservoir and water treatment plant at Keshavapuram,” the CM said.
