Development of remote areas of Surgana to be completed expeditiously by giving priority to water needs: Minister

Nashik, Nov 18 (UNI) The Surgana taluka is a region of record rainfall in Nashik district area. State Water Resources and Beneficiary Area Development Minister Jayant Patil has stated that the work of small scale irrigation and stream diversion schemes for the development of remote areas of Surgana taluka will be completed expeditiously by giving priority to the water needs .
According to an official press note released today, Minister Jayant Patil was talking when he inspected the Shri Bhuvanwater scheme at surgana tehsil on Tuesday.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister Jayant Patil said that despite Surgana taluka being the most rain-fed area, the water from here flows to the western sea. So the locals have to travel miles for drinking water. If schemes like small scale irrigation are done in this place, the water problem of the locals will be solved and with the availability of water, schemes like tap water supply can also be started in this area. The remaining water can be diverted to the west once the locals' water problem is resolved. Minister Jayant Patil has said that a full-time independent chief engineer and related agencies will be set up for this work.
