YCDC ensures drinking water supply in Dala Tsp

Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) ensures adequate drinking water supply to Dala Township wards, where local people face a water shortage problem as the lakes start to dry up in summer.
The water distribution project under the YCDC has been distributing water from 26 March 2021. The officials have provided 9,600 gallons of water to the local people in the Yazathingyan ward in Dala Township.
Moreover, they also supply 15,600 gallons of drinking water to Hmawsat and Tapinshwehtee wards and Tadachaung Sanpya village as of 8 April.
About 4,562 households in 24 wards have been connected to water pipelines. The YCDC built 1,200-gallon concrete water tanks in 34 sites with a household water supply and filled the tanks every two days.
Other households in the townships are relying on 332 lakes and ponds.
As Dala is close to the mouth of the Yangon River, the saltwater intrusions in wells occur in the township, so the local people are dependent only on ponds and lakes.
The lakes usually dry up in summer, and water scarcity often happens.
Those who are lack drinking water supply in Dala Township can dial the mobile phone (09-443155937) of the YCDC’s water distribution project. — Naing Lin Kyaw (Dala)/GNLM
