30 public loos use drinking water
There are 30 public toilets in the city that use drinking water. Taking up the work of 54 borewells initially, NMMC has plans to supply borewell water to all the public toilets in the city in phases. At present, the NMMC has initiated work on 30 borewells in Airoli, Digha, Rabale and Ghansoli to supply water to the slum areas. The civic water department has said that water has been found at around 100 feet in these areas. The use of borewell water is expected to save at least 5,000 litres a day of drinking water in every public toilet.
