Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao said that the Telangana government had designed the drinking water supply chain for Hyderabad to meet the requirements of the city for the next 100 years, and that it would ensure that the city wouldn't face any scarcity of drinking water even if there was a drought for five consecutive years.
KTR, along with his colleagues Sabitha Indra Reddy, Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Jagadish Reddy, Mahmood Ali and Srinivas Goud, laid the foundation stone for an intake well and a pumping house at Sunkisala at Peddavura in Nalgonda district on Saturday.
Speaking on the occasion, KTR said that right now drinking water was being supplied to Hyderabad from the Godavari and Krishna rivers, and that the Sunkisala systems were being set up to draw drinking water from another scheme if a system failed due to any reason.
The infrastructure at Sunkisala, being constructed at a cost of Rs. 1,450 crore, was designed to cater to the drinking water needs of Hyderabad up to 2077, he said.
"The most developing city in India now is Hyderabad, and it has become a huge asset not only for Telangana but also the entire country. All cities have some disadvantages, but Hyderabad has only advantages, including geographical and environmental," the minister said.
