COIMBATORE: The State government has sanctioned Rs 11 lakh for improving infrastructure works related to water supply in the South zone of Coimbatore Corporation.

The fund was approved for the civic body, along with Madurai Corporation, for improving water supply in added areas. However, the civic body is yet to receive an official confirmation from the Municipal Administration and Water Supply Department.

The funds will be used for constructing overheads tanks, repairing house service connection and laying main distribution pipelines under infrastructure gap filling fund.

Kovaipudur and its surrounding areas was annexed with the civic body about four years ago. The Corporation had proposed to construct four overhead tanks in Kovaipudur, PNT Nagar, Kovai Garden and EB Colony during the council meeting held last month.

“Water is supplied to the residents in Kovaipudur from the three overhead tanks once in five days. The tank has a capacity of Rs 1 lakh litres and the proposed tank will store seven lakh litres and hence the local body may be able to supply more water,” said A Samina, councillor of ward 90.

Meanwhile, opposition councillors charged that the State Government and civic body are concentrating on only developing the South zone.
