After 65 yrs, Opa water works to replace its main pipeline

After 65 years, Opa water works proposes to replace the rising main pipeline made of asbestos cement (AC) with a mild steel (MS) pipeline that raises water from the 8-MLD (1.75 MGD) Portuguese-era water treatment plant to Curti hillock based master balancing reservoir. The work was planned during the previous financial year, but since the PWD’s Goa Scheduled Rates (GSR) were revised, the file is pending for administrative approval.
