NMC-OCW will be using latest ‘Pressure Grouting’ technique for rehabilitating old overhead water tank. It is technique where series of holes were drilled through the concrete slab and wall of ESR, and a grout tube then inserted into each hole. Then a special chemical is pumped under pressure through each hole. The grout then displaced, compacted and solidified thus forming grout columns. Pressure grouting will stabilised the existing concrete walls, slabs etc. these ESR’. Further at Laxmi Nagar ESR the bottom slab is also

in dilapidated condition. NMC –OCW has plans to strengthen the bottom slab and in such way totally rehabilitate entire ESR for future use.

It may be mentioned here, recently, NMC-OCW, took initiative and on priority basis successfully not only plugged leakages but completely rehabilitated Minimata Nagar, Nandanvan and Old Wanjari Nagar ESR using similar technology.
