MLA joined volunteers in desilting River Swarna as part of Shramadaan

May 10: Udupi MLA Raghupathi Bhat joined volunteers in desilting River Swarna to make way for the free flow of water to Baje Dam in order to supply drinking water to Udupi city.
The ‘Shramadan’ was launched as Udupi town by volunteers and the MLA, who cleared obstacles over a distance of two kilometres. The accumulated silt had blocked the natural flow of the water for a distance of two kilometres. After an appeal by MLA Bhat, volunteers turned up in large numbers and began the work near Baje reservoir on Thursday morning. The clearing work went on throughout the day. Volunteers arrived with pick-axes and other tools needed to carry out desilting at the site. The city municipal council had installed pump sets in Manai, Bandaribettu and Putthige to lift water from small ponds on the bed of River Swarna in order to restore water supply via pipelines.
Udupi Deputy Commissioner Hepshiba Rani Korlapati and Additional Deputy Commissioner Vidya Kumari also visited the reservoir and inspected ongoing upgrades. The dredging work is in progress and water has begun to accumulate in the major pond.
