PHE Department Ensures Uninterrupted Water Supply During Lock-down
The Lock-down has put normal activities to a standstill. However, there are some services which are indispensable even during the direst circumstances. One such service is that of providing continuous water supply to the people.
The Department of Public Health Engineering (PHE) has been highly sensitive towards the basic need of the people, and have thus fielded engineers and field staff to regularly check the supplies, and ensure immediate repairs if required.
Apart from ensuring regular water supply, the PHED has been involved in installing temporary washbasins and taps in various public places during the lockdown period. The Department has also installed tanks and taps at Rangpo check post for the convenience of all the officials and staff manning the border and ensured 24/7 water supply.
Likewise, the Department has installed water tanks at the quarantine centres in Rangpo and Mining.
