Let it be any season in Cantonment, we locals are facing water issues. Before we used to receive water once in three days but nowadays we are receiving water once in six days. Also there is no fixed time for the supply of water. Few locals have laid illegal pipelines and motors due to which the pressure of water supply decreases.We requested the concerned officials to take stern action but all fell in deaf ears, said Ahmed, a social activist and resident of Karkhana.

The locals are currently dealing with challenge as a result of uneven water. What is making use of mounting water meters when we are not getting water effectively.The objective of mounting water meters will just be worthwhile if the SCB materials water on alternate days. It will certainly be much better if SCB expands the last day of installment till December.”
Meanwhile, Senior officer, SCB said, “Installation of water meters had actually started last Saturday as well as around15-20percent of individuals have actually mounted water meters. We are additionally getting around 100 to 150 ask for mounting water meters. Due to technological troubles in water pipes, couple of locations are getting uneven water. Their problem will certainly be addressed when the pipes are fixed. Another factor for scarcity of water is that the SCB is just getting 6 million gallons each day from the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply as well as Sewage Board (HMWS&SB) which is not enough. We have actually asked the water board to provide 8.1 million gallons each day,” included the authorities.
