In Yangon Region, it supplied a total of 205 million gallons of drinking water previously and it added water to 27 more million gallons reaching 232 million gallons per day starting the second week of October 2022, according to YCDC.
The projects to improve the water supply are being implemented and the Kokkowa Water Supply Project, Lagunpyin Water Supply Project and Twantay International Water Treatment Plant Projects are also being carried out as a way to reduce the loss of freshwater.
The water is distributed to Yangon residents from Hlawga, Gyophyu, and Ngamoeyeik reservoirs, Barlar Creek, Nyaunghnapin Water Treatment Plant, and Aungdagun Water-Treatment Plant daily. The tube wells are also used in some townships of the Yangon Region such as Shwepyitha, Hlinethaya and Hmawby townships, the committee said.
The Department of Engineering (Water and Sanitation) treats the water with PAC, and after purifying the water through the stages of the sedimentation tank and the chlorine dosage is added to the purified water and it also tests the colour, pH, electrical conductivity, total dissolved solids (TDS), salinity, turbidity, residual chlorine at the mini-laboratory of the plant daily.
