SAC Chairman PM Senior General Min Aung Hlaing inspects water supply facilities in Sittway

State Administration Council Chairman Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing views the Kandawgyi lake and water supply facilities in Sittway, Rakhine State on 28 February 2023.


Chairman of the State Administration Council Prime Minister Senior General Min Aung Hlaing yesterday morning inspected water supply facilities in Sittway of Rakhine State.
At the Kandawgyi lake and water collection tanks, departmental officials reported on daily water requirements of local people, water supply functions, rainfall, water storage, lesser volume of waterfalls since 2017, increasing population of Sittway and the problem of water supply, and necessity to supply water from Khamikyein Creek to water collection tanks and expansion of the water tank.
In his response, the Senior General stressed the need to seek ways for transforming seawater into freshwater in addition to storage and supply of freshwater to the region. It is necessary to conduct feasibility studies for tapping underground water in the northern part of the city without harming the environment. The Senior General instructed officials to improve the strengthening of the Kandawgyi water collection lake. Extreme extraction of timber in the region can cause climate change, lesser volume of rainfalls and natural disasters. Hence, all need to grow trees including mangrove forests.
The Senior General inspected water collection tanks and instructed officials to carry out necessary maintenance for the tanks and supply water enough to meet the demand of the region. — MNA/TTA
