The city is witnessing heavy rains, and Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewage Board (HMWS&SB) has adopted a three-step chlorination process to make sure that quality drinking water is supplied amid heavy rainfall in the city. Given that one needs to take great care during the season, officials visited several areas under the Pattigadda water reservoir in Begumpet and tested drinking water quality.


In the first phase, the chlorination process is being carried out at the water treatment plants (WTP). In the second phase, chlorination is being done at the main balancing reservoirs (MBR), and booster chlorination is being done at the service reservoirs because of heavy rains.


He said precautions are being taken to ensure there is exactly 0.5 PPM (Parts Per Million) chlorine in the water supplied to people. The officials have directed water board officials to be on alert given incessant rains in the city. The water board is paying special attention to drinking water quality and added that special measures are being taken to prevent water contamination. Due to heavy rains, about 15,000 chlorine tests are being done across the city every day. Special attention is being paid to slum areas, flood-affected areas, and low-lying areas of the city.


The Board is also distributing chlorine tablets to purify stored water. Awareness programs have also been carried out to purify drinking water using chlorine tablets to prevent water-borne diseases. The Board has formed 16 ‘monsoon safety’ teams which will provide round-the-clock service. Also, 16 mini-air-tech vehicles have been made available.


Opening manholes is an offense under Section 74 of the Water Board Act, and a criminal case will be registered if anyone opens the manhole cover. The customer care number for the Board is 155313.
