Ganderbal, Jan 22: In a bid to avoid freezing of water pipes during harsh winters, Jal Shakti department has laid High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) pipes in different areas of Ganderbal district for the first time to avoid obstruction in supplying drinking water to thousands of inhabitants.
People in Kashmir often face water related problems with the beginning of Chillai Kalan (40 days of harsh winter) particularly in the remote areas and because of the minus temperature, steel water pipes often freeze.
Talking to Rising Kashmir, AEE Jal Shakti Kangan, Nisar Ahmad said that Jal Shakti department has laid HDPE pipes in Gund block including Ramwari, Ganiwan, Rayil, Rezan, Gohi Pora, Sonamarg, Surfraw to provide water supply to general public in harsh winters.
He further said that in many areas the filtration plant and the drinking water pipes have frozen which cause problems to people during winters. 
“However, the employees of Jal Shakti department are performing their duty with full dedication and people are being supplied clean drinking water,” he said.
