Nurpur, April 3
The Nurpur Municipal Council (MC) had installed a number of drinking water coolers at various locations in the town over a decade ago to provide cold and clean drinking water to people. However, due to the poor upkeep, some of these water coolers are in a bad condition. Neither the Jal Shakti Department nor the local MC shows any interest in maintaining or repairing these coolers.
With the onset of summer, the need to maintain and clean these water coolers has increased so as to check contamination and risk to people’s health.
A tap of a water cooler installed on the approach road of the Housing Board Colony in ward number 2 is broken, leading to wastage of the stored water.
The successive MCs have never bothered to give due priority to the issue.
Promod Gupta, president of the Nurpur Sudhar Sabha, a local NGO, has demanded regular cleaning of these water coolers. He said the new MC should take prompt steps in this regard. Ashok Sharma, newly elected president of the Nurpur MC, said he would personally look into the matter.
Due to the poor upkeep, some of these water coolers are in a bad condition. Neither the Jal Shakti Department nor the local MC shows any interest in maintaining or repairing these coolers.
