Bhclean1Bhclean2 The water levels in most of the reservoirs went low during the dry season. National Water in collaboration with the Coast Water Services Board undertook a desilting exercise of nine wells to enhance their storage capacity.

All the nine wells were operating below their capacity because they were blogged due to siltation of the filters. According to the NWCPC Ag. Managing Director Dr. (Eng.) Ali I Hassan, the problem occurs within every three years due to accumulation hence the cleaning should be done regularly.

This exercise is done by a specializing cleaning method using special tools. The exercise which took place between August and September 2017 was successful. The wells are now restored to their normal economic operations.
