420 Wasa pumps to get dual power connection
Dhaka Power Distribution Company (DPDC) decided to give dual connection to the 420 water pumps of Dhaka Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (Wasa) under their area to keep supply of water normal.
The decision was taken at a meeting between DPDC and Wasa at Wasa Bhaban yesterday.
DPDC already has given dual electricity connections in eight pumps of Wasa in Dhanmondi and Mohammadpur, says an official of Wasa.
DPDC will give duel connections to water pump at Bhuter Gali today and at Green Road tomorrow, he said.
The Wasa currently has 520 water pumps in the city, half of which become affected due to load shedding, said the official.

DPDC Managing Director Md Ataul Masud, General Manager Rezashah Alam and Deputy General Manager AM Mizanur Rahman, Wasa Deputy Managing Director (Finance) Syed Golam Ahmad and Chief Engineer Nurul Haque present were present at the meeting.
