Groundwater panel to submit report this month

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, February 2

The committee comprising UT Administration and Municipal Corporation officers formed to reassess the groundwater resources in the city will submit its report this month.

The committee was tasked with reassessing annual ground water recharge of the UT and estimating the status of utilisation of the annual extractable ground resource.

The committee was asked to submit its report on or before February 26.

In 2019, Chandigarh figured among 14 state capitals where tap water is ‘undrinkable’. This report was released by the then Union Minister for Consumer Affairs, Food and Public Distribution, Ram Vilas Paswan, in New Delhi. Same year, the city topped the list of water-stressed states/UTs, as per a report of the World Resource Institute (WRI), an international think tank.
