At the same time, a new pipeline will be laid in place of the damaged and dilapidated pipe. It may be known that in the past, Megha water supply scheme was made for 19 Panchayats of Bermo from Tenughat Dam, in which both the said Panchayats of Jaridih Bazar were separated. The people here had demanded from the Bermo MLA to connect the above two Panchayats with the Bermo Multi Rural Water Supply Scheme.
Junior Engineer Suresh Tigga says that because:
The water supply scheme was already showing in the Jaridih market, so instead of connecting the above two panchayats with the Bermo Multi Rural Water Supply Scheme, the scheme was approved separately. This scheme will also be called Megha Water Supply Scheme. It may be known that a year and a half ago, apart from Superintendent Engineer Riyaz Ahmed of DWUSD Dhanbad, Executive Engineer Sanjay Prasad, SDO of the department Abike Ambala and Mechanical Officer Shubhashish Bhattacharya had inspected the old water supply scheme of Jaridih Bazar.
