Kanhan WTP operating as per requirement
Water supply in North, East and South-East Nagpur normalized.

Since April 16 (Saturday) morning , there is sufficient raw water available at intake wells of Kanhan Water Treatment Plant (WTP), water supply in the affected areas of Ashi Nagar Zone , Satranjipura Zone, Lakarganj Zone, Nehru Nagar Zone has been normalized.

It may be mentioned here that, the Kanhan Water Treatment Plant (WTP) lifts raw water from Kanhan River which is perennial in nature, and hence every year during summer period additional water as per requirement is released from Right Bank canal (RBC) of Navegaon Khairi dam to fulfill the water requirement of the Nagpur city. This year also since 23rd March, 2016 around 30 Cusec of water was released by Water Resources Department (erstwhile Minor Irrigation Dept.). Meanwhile, it was learnt that suddenly RBC was closed for four days i.e. from 8th to 11th of April for repair work, however here at Kanhan WTP the reduction in the river flow at the Kanhan intake wells was noticed from 13th of April morning as due to the left out water in the canal and downstream flow the required raw water demand could be fulfilled.

Meanwhile, NMC-OCW under the supervision of OCW CEO Mr Sanjoy Roy and NMC SE, Mr Shashikant Hastak initiated various measures and ensured that water reaches at faster rate at the intake wells as well as from there to affected areas of city. A Cross-Bund (7m length X 0.5 m height) with 150 odd sand bags on the downstream of Escape gate inside RBC created to store sufficient water. An excavator has been deployed in the Kanhan River near Khaperkheda Bridge to channelize the river flow in the downstream. Further another excavator has been deployed from Kanhan intake well towards upstream side to channelize the river flow. Now Additional water has been released from RBC intake well making total released water to around 100 Cusec.

OCW-NMC jointly has thanked people from North, East and South-East Nagpur for their co-operation during these difficult days and have appealed for further co-operation also.
