12 Aug 19 - Source: Global New Light Of Myanmar - Construction of pipelines is underway from Lagwunpyin water storage facility to Thakayta and Dawbon townships, Yangon Region.

The project is expected to distribute three million gallons of water every day at completion.

U Myint Zaw Than, Deputy Director-General at Engineering Department (Water and Sanitation) of Yangon City Development Committee, said, "Construction of water pipeline in Thakayta and Dawbon townships are scheduled to complete by the end of this year in the first phase. The second phase of the project will be extended depending on the budget allocation. The whole project will have a distribution capacity of three million gallons of water each day."

Pipelines are being laid down along Shukinthar road and Ayeyawun Road. A project worker in the section of Shukinthar road said, "We are prioritizing on connecting the bigger pipelines as the smaller pipes can be joined more easily. This new pipeline will surely help to distribute more water for the public."
