Shimla to get water on alternate days

Shimla, July 31

The city will receive water on alternate days from tomorrow till turbidity at the water sources reduces, especially at the Giri water scheme.

"Turbidity at the Giri water scheme is too high to handle. As a result, we are not able to lift the required amount of water. To ensure equitable distribution of water, we have decided to provide water on alternate days until the availability of water improves," said Rajesh Kashyap, AGM, Shimla Jal Prabandhan Nigam Limited (SJPNL).

Kashyap said Giri water scheme has been the worst affected as a lot of developmental works are happening in the catchment area of the river.

He said they would try to provide water to the core area of the city and commercial establishments on a daily basis. "As for residential areas, we will provide water with extended timings on alternate days so that they can store adequate water for the next day," he said. "The company would not compromise with water quality," he said. — TNS
