Drink-from-tap water to every Puri house

Tuesday, 27 July 2021 | PNS | PURI

Puri became the first city in the country to provide 24×7 drink-from-tap quality water (ISO: 10500) to every household as Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik inaugurated the water supply system on Monday.

With this, Puri also joined the league of cities like London, New York and Singapore. The move will benefit around 2.5 lakh residents of Puri as they now have access to ‘Drink-From-Tap’ water round the clock.

The move is expected to eliminate the usage of three crore plastic bottles preventing 400 metric tonnes of plastic waste. To discourage the use of plastic water bottles, drinking water fountains would be installed at public places.

Jalsathis from women Self-Help Groups will carry out the quality surveillance of water supply. The project has been implemented under the 5T initiative of the State Government.
