THE government has a plan to build dams and reservoirs that can benefit the local people of regions and states that have abundant water resources including Rakhine State, said Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation at the Amyotha Hluttaw session yesterday.
In his response to a question on dam repairs in Rakhine State’s Yathedaung Township, the deputy minister said that works to repair Kampaing freshwater reservoir will be added to the regional government’s priority queue for the 2017-2018 FY following a cost-benefit analysis and a feasibility study.
Likewise, the deputy minister replied to a question on water supply from Laibar dam to Falam stating that a project is being implemented to supply the town with water from Yawsel creek through a pipeline with the use of K150 million from the regional funds of Chin State.
Upon completion, 1,188 residents in two urban wards will benefit from the project, he added.
During the 30th day Amyotha Hluttaw session, a Bill Committee member presented its report on a Bill Revoking Mandalay City Development Law to the parliamentarians.
