March 18, 2022

Mysore/Mysuru: With the MUDA (Mysuru Urban  Development Authority) having proposed to make optimal use of Kabini water by upgrading the Bidaragodu Jackwell Point from the current 60 MLD (Million Litres Per Day) capacity to 180 MLD, MUDA Chairman H.V. Rajeev, along with a team of officials, visited the Jackwell Point and Kembalu and Udbur Gate water distribution points this morning.

Rajeev, who began his inspection by visiting Bidaragodu Jackwell Point, about 20 kms from Mysuru and located in Nanjangud taluk where Kabini river flows, sought inputs from officials on the progress of works.

The Project is aimed at providing sufficient drinking water to newly  formed  MUDA and MUDA approved layouts in southern parts of city covering localities such as Dattagalli and R.T. Nagar.

During the inspection, Rajeev was explained in detail the works under progress and the salient features in blue print of the project. Officials said that  it has been planned to upgrade the  11 KV power station near Bidaragodu to 66/6 KV power station, incorporating three power sub- stations for power transmission lines. Also, 3 Motors of 1,500 HP capacity each will be installed for drawing the desired quantity of  water. The ambitious project also incorporates a total of 6 MBRs (Master Balancing Reservoirs), with 4 of them added of late following the enhancement of MLD. While two MBRs already exist at Kalalawadi and Dhanagalli, the new ones will come up at Kuppalur, Hosahundi, Haalalu and Bogadi.

After raw water is drawn from Kabini river, the water will be discharged to Kembalu Water Treatment Plant and then to Udbur Gate Water Treatment Plant, after which the fully treated                 water will be supplied through pipelines to all localities of the city coming under the purview of the project.
