Shimla, January 2
The state has been placed on top in the overall functionality assessment of potable water in a survey conducted by an independent agency.
The survey took into consideration quality, quantity and regularity of potable water. “The Centre gets a functionality assessment survey done by a third party. Himachal topped the functionality parameter and did well in quality parameter too,” said Sanjeev Kaul, Engineer in Chief, Jal Shakti Vibhag.
As per the survey report, 88 per cent household tap connections were found satisfactory against the parameters like quantity, quality and regularity. Moreover, 98 per cent connections cleared 13 parameters for quality check and the same number of connections were found working in the survey.
As for the regularity of supply, 77 per cent connections had daily supply, while 19 per cent had between 3-6 days. Only 4 per cent connections had supply on 1-2 days in a week. As for potability of the water supply, 98 per cent samples cleared all parameters with just 2 per cent failing on one parameter.
The Jal Shakti Vibhag has set up 56 labs across the state. The department is planning to set up another 10 labs. — TNS
