In a bid to allay the water crisis in the Government Ayurveda Hospital at Puthiyakavu, the district administration is planning to convert an unused pond behind the Ayurveda pharmacy in the hospital into a major source to provide drinking water.

District Collector P I Sheik Pareeth said that a master plan for the drinking water project to the hospital would be prepared by Nirmithi  Kendra, Kakkanad.

The Collector had taken the decision during his visit to the hospital a couple of weeks ago. The Nirmithi Kendra has already been  directed by the district administration to prepare a master plan for the drinking water project. “It will submit the project to district administration at the earliest,” the Collector said.

Meanwhile, Nirmithi Kendra officials said that the master plan is only at its initial stage. “The identified pond area covers nearly 20 cents of land. It will be renovated by constructing a compound wall. The whole area of the pond will then be around 30 cents of land, once the renovation works are over,” said a Nirmithi Kendra official.

He said that after the renovation works, the  ground water development authorities will check whether the water is fit for drinking. “If the water is potable, it will be distributed to the hospital directly from the pond. Otherwise we will set up a water treatment plant near the pond,” the official added.   Nirmithi Kendra said that though the estimation of the project is still not completed, it assumes that a huge amount must be set apart to implement the project.

“Though the pond was being neglected for many years, it has water in it all seasons. We expect the pond can fulfill the water requirement of the hospital even during monsoon,” he said.  The project will be of great relief once the project is implemented.Express News Service
