BWSSB on the vigil
WITH temperatures rising in the city, Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB), is gearing up to meet any eventualities related to health that may occur during summer. BWSSB officials said, “Exhaustive meetings are being held with BBMP officials, health and water inspectors to discuss strategies for preventing the spread of diseases.” The officials said, “During summer due to excess heat, expansion and contraction of water pipelines occur. This leads to cross connection and contamination of water. We are taking steps to prevent such possibilities.” They said, “If anyone comes across sewage overflow, they should immediately inform the authorities, so that steps will be taken to prevent contamination of water. Fresh water will be supplied to them. We are also gearing up to meet water scarcity during summer. We will make sure that water is supplied to all the residents of the city.” The BWSSB has advised people to drink only boiled water in summer.
