Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation going to establish more than 100 water kiosks

Bhubaneswar:24/3/18: To beat the summer heat and help citizens quenching their thirst during the gruelling sunny afternoons, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation in association with several organisations across the city is going to establish more than 100 water kiosks or Jala Seva Shibirs.

The facility will start from April 1. Each water kiosk would have three earthen pots of 60 to 70 litres of capacity to contain cold, potable water. Till last year, BMC was supplying two earthen pots to each Jala Seva Shibir.

However, during the meeting chaired by BMC Mayor Ananta Narayan Jena, many prospective participants said that with two water pots it was difficult to manage people’s need as at many places water scarcity was noticed by 2 pm as the temperature rises.

Listening to the discussion, Mayor announced that this year three earthen pots would be supplied to each Jala Seva Shibir.

From among the major organisations present at BMC Conference Hall to discuss the Jala Seva Shibir, included Lions Club, Satyasai Seva Trust, Pradeep Seva Trust, Theosophical Order of Service the Mahabharat Group, Bhubaneswar Auto Rickshaw Maha Sangh, Green Chillies, social service organisation SAHA, Saisab India Foundation, Siddhi Binayak Trust, Odisha Bhinnakshyam Bhagabat Sevashram, Pravesika Forum, Ganesh Bazar Auto Malik Sangh, St Jones Ambulance Odisha, Nikhil Utkal Kshyudra Byabasayi Mahasangh, Vishwa Jeevan Sangh, Youth For Social Work, Sashtri Nagar Unnayan Parishad.

From the above organisations, Bhubaneswar Auto Rickshaw Maha Sangh would put up Jala Seva Shibirs at 38 locations or even more.

The total number will be more than 100 as many organisations promised Mayor to increase their participation as this year the summer might be quite difficult with a worldwide trending of high temperature due to climate change and global warming effects.
