Borewell defunct, officials helpless

.........BERHAMPUR: Residents in Titigaon under Patrapur block in Ganjam district are facing water scarcity as a project constructed for them is lying defunct due to lack of maintenance. The village, with a population of around 1,133, has only one tubewell. As the sole source often supplied dirty water, a borewell was sunk near Radhakrushna temple and a pump house and an overhead tank was constructed.It was inaugurated by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in May last year in the presence of Berhampur MP Siddhant Mohapatra and Minister and MLA Usha Devi. Water was being supplied to the four stand posts and RWSS officials had also assured to provide pipe water connections to individual houses. But after about two months, the project stopped supplying water, the villagers alleged. The RWSS officials took the plea that the borewell is not pumping water and hence they are helpless. They said the higher-ups have been apprised of the matter and a new borewell will be sunk to restore water supply. Presently, the villagers collect water from the neighbouring village. The villagers have urged the district administration to take immediate steps to provide drinking water to them.
