Hyderabad: The seed capital Amaravati will require 95.7 million litres of drinking water per day when Phase-5 is developed. The water requirement will be 11.6 million litres in Phase-1, according to the master plan.
Singapore experts have recommended that the government take up a water yield study, factoring in the completion timeline of Polavaram and Pulichinthala dams, their capacity and the water to be released into the Krishna.
Water from the Krishna will be treated and supplied to the seed capital. The plan recommends feasibility studies to be taken up to build water treatment plants, laying of water transmission mains and distribution centres. The water treatment plant will located 3.5 km to the western boundary of the seed area. Water mains from the WTP will be connected to the downtown road corridor.
Three water distribution centres, which comprise ground tanks, pumps and elevated tanks, are proposed to be constructed. In the initial phase, the first WDC and its network would be provided close to the centre of Phase 1 development. As the development spreads towards the east, additional WDCs and water mains would be constructed.
