NGAZUN Township, located in the arid Myingyan District, will receive 100 tube-wells from the Mandalay Region Special Fund. The wells will help irrigate local farms.
The cost of digging the wells will be K60.25 million (US$46,750). Twenty-seven wells have already been dug in the township.
All the wells are to be completed by the end of November, when the plantation season starts, said a township official.
Myingyan District Deputy Commissioner U Myint Thin Aung came to inspect a completed 10-centimetre diameter tube well in Ward 4 on 9 October and observed its irrigation of nearby farms.
The tube wells are being dug by the Irrigation and Water Utilisation Management Department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation.
