Yass and the consequent Spring tide had flooded a vast area of Sundarban with saline water. The hand pumps used for drinking water are inundated or chocked with debris. Most existing toilets are swept away, and there is serious pollution from sewage and dead animals. The threat of water born epidemics is very high. The supply of safe drinking water has reached crisis level.
In this situation dewatering of pond water is very much essential as in rural areas people depends on the pond water for domestic works.
Mukti in an immediate basis started dewatering the ponds of Mathurapur II Block. Pump sets were engaged for 516 hrs to dewater 25 ponds.
|Village Name||Gram Panchayat||Block||Number of Ponds||Hrs.|
|Kali Gheri||Uttar Kankandighi||Mathurapur II||5||98|
|Moktar Gheri||Dakshin Kankandighi||Mathurapur II||3||66|
|Purba Sridharpur||Nagendrapur||Mathurapur II||12||257|
|4 Villages||3 GPs||1 Block||25||516|
Hundred of ponds are yet to be none. Mukti is trying to dewatering the ponds as soon as possible.
