A new water supply project for Trimbakeshwar is on the way to its completion. The Maharashtra Jeevan Pradhikaran (MJP), Nasik, is completing this new water supply project worth Rupees 2 crore. Purpose of this project is for the future demand of water supply throughout the upcoming Kumbh Mela. Trimbakeshwar town will be co-hosting Kumbh Mela along with Nasik city. Water requirements for Trimbakeshwar for this time are anticipated as 43 million liters per day (MLD).
10lakh visitors per day will be estimated to visit the Trimbakeshwar during the Mela. MJP engineers have stated that the water supply project is in its beginning phase. A senior official from MJP said that keeping in mind about need, flushing water from the Gautami-Godavari is likely to be an extra special task, as Nasik city needs 13 MLD of water per day. The MJP thus is preparing to set up six pumps with low capacity to fill up water in Ganga Sagar Lake.
They are predictable to begin their job six days previous to 'Shahi Snan' (holy dip). Officials further said that installing higher capacity pumps has been ruled out due to frequent expenses and maintenance involved. The expenditure of installing smaller pumps were being estimated in such a way that the Trimabak Municipal Council at the other hand would be able to utilize four pumps every day to fulfill their necessities and would still have two in support. Officials added that several issues are being solved comprising of getting space for increasing infrastructure. Estimations are also being equipped to make sure the plan is outlined properly so it can be performed efficiently.
