Water tanks are established in Monywa to supply water to local people.

THE Monywa Township Development Committee has announced that six wards in the town of Monwya, located in Myanmar’s northwestern Sagaing Region, will be connected to a supply of drinking water using a loan from the Japanese government worth over K473 million (US$387,387).
Monywa currently consumes 3,330,800 gallons of water per day, but the local water distribution facility operated by the municipal development committee only has the capacity to provide 1,195,000 gallons, or to just 36 per cent of the total.
“The Monywa municipal department will provide water to wards without water with a loan from Japan. Wells and reservoirs will be dug. We will then connect wards of the town with water from these sources. The implementation of the project will begin at the end of March,” said Ma Nway Aye, an engineer for the Monywa Township Development Committee.
The Monywa wards of Aye Tharyar, Monywa Taung, Nat Luu Hteithan, Myo Thit, Obo Taung and Chan Myawaddy do not currently have a reliable supply of drinking water.
Equipment for the water supply project is now being collected, and the project is slated for completion within the 2016-2017 fiscal year.
