Dhaka Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (Wasa) yesterday announced of keeping 12 complaint centres open round the clock during the upcoming month of Ramadan.
Addressing a press conference at Wasa Bhaban, managing director of Wasa Taqsem A Khan said residents of Dhaka city will not face any water scarcity during Ramadan, but in case of any pocket problems, people will be able to report to the complaint centres to get quick result.
Taqsem said Dhaka residents face water shortage in Ramadan and the dry season, since the demand is higher during those times.
He said currently Wasa has the capacity to produce 255 crore litres of water per day, against the demand of 245 to 252 crore litres per day.
He said Wasa has been delivering 49 crore litres of water through five water treatment plants -- which is 22 percent of the total production -- while rest 206 crore litre are coming from Wasa's 906 deep tube wells.
Taqsem said they have already taken initiatives to construct three more water treatment plants to reduce dependency on groundwater to 30 percent by 2021.
He said the plants will be built at Jasaldiya of Mawa, Gandhabpur of Rupganj and Sayedabad Water Treatment Plant Phase-III at Sayedabad.
