The Water & Sanitation Department under Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) is making arrangements to supply sufficient water to Dala Township in the southern district of Yangon.
The project will be developed with the assistance of the Japanese government. About 1 million gallons of water is being supplied daily from Yangon drinking water supply camp to Dala Township. This project could supply 3.3 million gallons of water.
Besides, the department will be able to distribute and sell the 66,000 gallons of drinking water daily by water container vehicles to Kungyangon, Kawhmu and Twante townships in the Yangon region.
To be able to access the aid from the Japanese government, YCDC conducted field inspection tours for three years starting from 2015. The water purification factory will be constructed near Phaya Gyi Su village next to the Twante Canal. Then, the water from the Twante Canal will be extracted and refined.
Also, pumping station and service reservoirs, which can accommodate 3.3 million gallons of water will be constructed in Dala township. Water will be distributed to Dala town. The water pipeline connection project to Dala town is being implemented with the spending of YCDC’s fund.
The department heads are conducting day and night to construct the entrance road of the project to carry out every season to prevent the delay of the water purification factory project. The sand filling work on 18.78 acres of project land is being carried out starting from the 2019-2020 financial year.
KFE engineering corporation company won the tender of the water purification factory. The estimate of the whole project is ¥4.176 billion. The duration of the project is about two and a half years. — Myo Min Thura/GNLM
