Tackling Drinking Water Crisis
Drinking water supply is being undertaken in a smooth manner during Coronavirus Lockdown period so that people don’t suffer. Officials have been asked to repair the defunct tube wells on a war footing. Those areas lacking facilities will be provided water through tankers. A control room has also been set up with separate helpline numbers 1916 for rural areas & 18003456783 for urban areas of the State for redressal of complaints related to drinking water problems, said Odisha Panchayati Raj & Drinking Water department minister Pratap Jena.
