KATHMANDU: Minister for Drinking Water Mahendra Ray Yadav has pledged to provide water to the Kathmandu Valley residents throughout the year by making optimum use of the water wasted in the rivulets and stone spouts even in the absence of Melamchi in the rainy season.

The government has been effortful to provide drinking water to the people of the capital by utilizing water from alternative sources as Melamchi water could not be supplied throughout the year, the Minister said.

“At present, 25 per cent people have access to clean drinking water and 95 per cent to basic drinking water across the country,” he said.

The government, he claimed, has been carrying out homework to manage and properly utilize the water wasted at night from stone spouts and other sources as an alternative to Melamchi.
