Canal based schemes

About 20% of habitations in the State have canal as source of water where water is drawn from the adjoining canal. In some districts (such as Bhatinda, Mansa, Muktsar, Faridkot, Parts of Ferozepur, Moga and Sangrur) water supply schemes rely on canals as the only source for piped water schemes (about 600 habitations out of total 3161 habitations). The canal based schemes consist of an outlet from the canal, a large water storage tank to hold water during canal closure periods (about 2 weeks), a filtration plant and a clear water reservoir. Water from the clear water reservoirs is pumped into a common OHSR and distributed to one or more habitations leading to formation of a canal based SV or canal based MV scheme.
