WATER supply projects undertaken in Kyauktaw Township, Rakhine State, as part of the government’s 100-day development plan have been brought to completion, according to the township’s Rural Development Department.
The tasks for the reclamation of the lakes in four villages in the township to provide drinking water were completed in the first week of June.
A defunct lake in Mahamuni Village has been successfully dredged at a cost of K2 million by the Rural Development Department.
The lake has been filled with rain water and is ready to be put to use by locals.
The recovery of the lakes in Mahamuni, Taungpauk, Ponna and Thebon villages was carried out at a total cost of K9 million (US$7,500).
The lakes, each measuring 100 square feet, can now collect rain water and provide water to local residents.
The restoration of the water storage facilities will assist local people in 284 villages and in five wards in the township in storing fresh water in order to enable villagers to get access to drinking water in the summer.—Maung Maung Myint Swe
