WSSP starts replacing pumping machinery of 32 tube-wells in Peshawar
PESHAWAR: Water and Sanitation Services Peshawar (WSSP) Thursday launched work on replacement of pumping machinery of 32 old tube-wells with new, cost-effective and environment-friendly machinery in the city. The project will cost Rs20.63 million that will be completed within six months. Project Department of the company will supervise the project to ensure timely completion and installation of quality machinery.
The project wing has made alternative arrangements to ensure supply of water to consumers.
In the first phase, 32 tube-wells would be replaced and submersible water pumps would be installed.
“These machines have high pressure and consume less electricity,” said Engineer Jahangir Khan, Manager Project who is also supervising the project. Installation of the new water pumping machinery would supply water to tail-end consumers, resolving low pressure problem.
In the first phase, six tube-wells would be replaced in Zone A, nine in Zone B, nine in Zone C and eight in Zone D. The existing machinery was decades old with low efficiency and pressure and high maintenance and electricity cost.
The sanitation company has also started work on construction of an overhead reservoir in Deh Bahadur.
Construction of reservoir would provide water storage facility and water would be available to consumers. - APP
