LOCATED within NyaungU Township, Mandalay Region, Kanthaya Village will recieve an adequate amount of water next month, a spokesperson from the rural region development department said. According to news published in the state-owned newspapers on Monday, the rural region development department recently visited Kanthaya Village to solve the water problem villagers have been facing recently.
The village of 285 households has a population of 1,500 and about 8,500 farm animals. It has only a tube-well for water, 680 feet in depth, producing 1,200 gallons of water per hour.
According to an investigation, they found that the five-acre wide reservoir cannot produce sufficient water for locals because of its declining water level.
The department has put more effort into carrying out renovations of water pipes linking with the Natthamee Kanpa river pump project in NyaungU Township.  The renovation of such pipe lines is nearing completion with the department planning to distribute water to Kanthaya and nearby villages in March.
