The Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) will start distributing water in Dala Township after this year’s rainy season, according to Yangon Region Chief Minister U Phyo Min Thein. The project has reached the water purification stage.
The YCDC will carry out the distribution of water with the use of water browsers, as it has to implement the project in a short period. We will lay water pipes in the rainy season and then distribute the water.
The YCDC is implementing the water supply project in cooperation with a private company. The water supply project will use water from Toe River.
The company will carry out water purification, while the YCDC will distribute it.
The YCDC will collect a certain amount as the tap water bill, he added. People in Dala Township have to rely on lakes, as the underground water quality is poor. The region faces water shortage every summer.
The region government planned to implement this project as social organisations have to donate water every year.
