Minister for Water Resources Shri Subhash Shirodkar, today visited various water bodies in South Goa. These includes Davorlim raw water pumping station, Salzora Lake, Quepem Dam, Kushawati River, Mirabhag, Soliem and Salaulim Dam.
During his visit, he said April and May are the ideal months to inspect the water bodies as the demand for water supply is high and there is a scarcity of water in the state. This is the right season wherein we can plan the strategies for the next upcoming 25 years. “My purpose behind this inspection is to provide sufficient water supply to Salcete and Mormugao Taluka as there is a huge demand for water supply as both these talukas are densely populated and also has Industrial Estate”.
Shri Shirodkar further said that the upcoming 250 MLD project will solve the problems of water scarcity in North Goa. Similarly, WRD will take up a 150-200 MLD water project in South Goa which will definitely address the problem of water scarcity in the state. The other dignitaries who accompanied the Minister during his visit were Chief Engineer Shri Pramod Badami, additional Chief Engineer Shri Santosh Gaonkar, Superintendent Engineer Shri Krishnakanth Patil along with other WRD technical staff and engineers.
