The decision comes close on the heels of the visit to Israel by a team of officers and ministers, led by the Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, to study how Israelis made optimum use of available water resources.
This was stated by Dharambir, Chief Parliamentary Secretary, in a release issued here today. He told newsmen that the Gurgaon Canal feeder which originates from the Okhala Barrage, supplies water to four districts of Faridabad, Mewat, some parts of Palwal and Sohna area of Gurgaon District. The water of this canal is primarily used for irrigation but after installation of the treatment plant at the place where it parts from Agra Canal, the water would be used for drinking. It normally carries 100 to 300 cusecs of water and has a share for Rajasthan also.
