Pilerne: The long-pending issue of water problem in Reis Magos and Nerul will be solved once the water pipeline is laid from Porvorim to Verem. A special pipeline is proposed at an estimated cost of Rs 13 crores which will be laid by the PWD water department at Reis Magos, said Saligao MLA Jayesh Salgaonkar.
Salgaonkar has appealed to the people to cooperate as it will put traffic and locals to inconvenience due to the digging of roads which will commence very soon for laying the water pipeline by the PWD water department.
Jayesh was speaking at a function when he came to inaugurate the work of an internal road at Pilerne taken up by the PWD at an estimated cost of Rs 14 lakh covering a distance of 300 meters.
Speaking to media, Jayesh said that three major works are to be carried out in his Saligao constituency, namely the long pending issue of hot mix of the Chogm road which will be taken up after many years. The other issue is the laying of 11 kva line underground cables by the electricity department at Pilerne, Sangolda and Saligao. There is also another separate parallel water pipeline that will also be laid for the naval base at Verem. At present the naval personnel are using the same water pipeline laid for households at Verem.
