Melamchi water project an open-ended mission
With a succession of deadlines to supply Melamchi water to parched Kathmandu Valley having passed without fruition, the Melamchi Water Supply Development Board told the parliamentary Development Committee on Thursday that they had stopped fixing target dates.
Ram Chandra Devkota, executive director of the board, informed lawmakers that the project contract would end on March 26 next year. “We don’t have a specific date to start supplying water, but it will happen before the end of the contract period,” he said.
Devkota added that they had created a plan to expedite the project so that tasks would follow a timetable. The latest deadline to send water from the Melamchi River gushing into homes in Kathmandu was September.
