Bogadi residents in west Mysuru will have access to clean piped water soon. Bogadi town panchayat has initiated a demand survey for piped water connections that will supply surface water from Cauvery River round the clock. This initiative is part of the Amrit 2.0 scheme, which aims to provide safe drinking water to all households. The newly formed Bogadi town panchayat includes Beerihundi, Jatti Hundi, MK Halli, Basanahalli and surrounding areas.
One of the challenges faced by the local residents is the issue of hard water, which is expected to be resolved once the town panchayat starts the Cauvery water supply.
According to Basavaraju M, chief officer, Bogadi town panchayat, the Rs 73 crore water supply scheme will be implemented by the Karnataka Urban Water Supply and Drainage Board. “Once completed, the residents of the town panchayat will get Cauvery water round the clock from Hale Unduwadi water project,” he said. According to locals, the town panchayat limits are witnessing rapid expansion, including several new government-run hostels for students. “This area which falls under the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (Muda) is witnessing rapid
horizontal expansion with new residential projects being launched by private developers. However, the big challenge is the drinking water crisis. With the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) level in the range of 1,000ppm to 2,000ppm, all the residents were forced to opt for tank water or use water softeners. We hope this water supply scheme will be completed at the earliest,” said Sukanya G Rao, a resident of RR Nagar.
