The planning and pre-requisite works were taken up jointly by NMC-OCW for releasing water into the distribution system from earlier this month. The pre-requisites mainly include the flushing of 8 km pipeline (from PENCH IV Godhani WTP to Sugat Nagar) lines which was taken up since April 17, 2015. Flushing is process initiated by NMC –OCW technical expert’s team in an effort to ensure clean and safe water supply to the citizens of North Nagpur.

This work of flushing of pipelines is essential as the pipes and fittings often turn dusty during their storage and installation. Flushing ensures that the complete system is cleaned before it is utilised in public service.

It may be mentioned here NMC-OCW technical experts team while working round-the clock on this particular project, not only cleaned/flushed 8 km , 800 dia pipeline but also ensured clean and sufficient water for the people of North and East Nagpur.

NMC-OCW has jointly thanked people for their co-operation and support.
