Butwal: In a bid to address water scarcity of the district for a long term, the work of supplying water of Jhumsa Khola to Butwal under the Butwal Drinking Water Improvement Project has reached to its final stage. A total of Rs. 200 million has been estimated for the project which would be provided by the government as a loan and through internal sources of Nepal Water Supply Corporation.

Water supply from the source to Ramphedi pond worth Rs. 130 million and installation of pipes from Butwal to Jhumsa Bridge have already been completed while the installation of pipes from the bridge to Jhumsa water source is yet to be finished. The corporation informed that it would be able to supply additional 80 thousand litres of water after the completion of the project. Currently, water from Tinau River, Chidiya Khola and tube wells built in different wards of the districts have been supplied to Butwal dwellers to meet the growing demand of drinking water.
The corporation had earlier aimed to complete the project in June 2012 for Rs. 130 million which was later extended up to Rs. 200 million after the decision to supply water from Jhumsa Khola instead of Sisne Khola was made. About Rs. 65 million was provided by the government as a loan after there were changes in initial plans of the project. There is a daily demand of 30 million litres of water in Butwal but the corporation is able to supply only 7 million litres of water in rainy season and 15 million litres in the dry season.
