Fourth pipeline to be laid to bring Krishna water to Hyderabad

To overcome the shortage of drinking water in Greater Hyderabad in the future, another pipeline (4) is going to be laid and will approximately cost Rs 1,400 crore. The pipeline will be laid in Sunkishala, Nagarjunasagar, and provide drinking water from the Krishna river to Hyderabad.

The project was announced on Monday, by MAUD Minister, KT Rama Rao, while laying the foundation stone of Phase-2, Outer Ring Road (ORR), drinking water supply scheme in the Alkapoor Township, Manikonda. This project will approximately cost Rs 687 crore.

Upon the completion of the new line, Hyderabad city will have a sufficient supply of drinking water from the Krishna river. The project will not help to meet the current drinking water requirement but also the needs of the upcoming 30 years.

Additionally, while addressing the state’s irrigation needs, the minister said that the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme (KLIS) will assist in providing a drinking water supply to Greater Hyderabad.

Other reservoirs namely, Kondapochamma Sagar and Mallannasagar too have the provisions for contributing to the drinking water requirements of the city.

Chief Minister, K Chandrasekhar Rao has made plans to consider the drinking water demand in the future for interlinking the Kondapochamma and Osmansagar reservoirs. This makes sure that Gandipet is filled and does not face any interruption while supplying water to the city. It will ensure a sufficient supply of drinking water to the city until 2051.

The state’s water supply comes from Godavari (Yellampally) and Krishna (Akkampally). There will be a permanent solution for the problem of drinking water supply and surrounding areas if the supply comes from the Kondapochamma reservoir.
