Dunai in dark as landslide breaks hydropower canal


Jajarkot, Sept 6 (RSS): Jajarkot district headquarters, Dunai Bazaar, has been in dark after the landslide disrupted supply of power generated from Jairigad Hydropower Project. 

Locals have been compelled to live in dark since Tuesday when the landslide swept away certain portion of the canal associated to the hydropower project on Tuesday. 

Project sources claimed that the landslip had taken away around 40-metres portion of the canal. 

A technical team of the Regional Electricity Authority is making preparation to lay plastic pipes to ensure smooth flow of water int eh canal. However, a call for bidding will be solicited for renovation of the broken canal, the project informed. 

As the landslides this time around had inflicted big loss to the canal it requires careful renovation.
