The Commissioner asked questions regarding the water treatment capacity, daily processed water volume, daily water supply, and a number of elevated service reservoirs (ESRs) connected to the Desaipet filter bed during the inspection. He also went through the water release records for these ESRs and gave orders for authorities to follow the predetermined plan. Currently, 25 of the 33 Overhead service Reservoirs (OHSRs) located inside these filter beds have flow meters. To guarantee effective monitoring, we must put flow meters in the remaining OHSRs, he stated.
He emphasized the value of routine inspections carried out by linemen. Later, the head of the civic body went to the OHSR construction site in Puppalagutta and ordered the workers there to speed up their work so that it could be finished by the deadline.
