Water Resources of Kirtipur Municipality - A context with Erratic Rainfall

Water Resources of Kirtipur Municipality - A context with Erratic RainfallTwo main sources of water are the springs at Dudh Pokahri and Sim Jhowahiti, which provide drinking water through a centralized piped water supply system with a capacity of 2200m3 per day for Dudh Pokhari and 1000m3 per day for Sim Jhowahiti (ICIMOD, 2003). An additional source at Lwangkot, which lies outside the municipal boundary in Machhengaun VDC, has a capacity of 1200m3 per day and serves the old core area of the municipality. A large number of households in the municipality still depend upon traditional water sources such as wells, stone spouts, springs and ponds. A study in 1999 showed that only 25% of households had piped water supply (www.earthscape.org). A number of public taps have been constructed by the Nepal Water Supply Corporation (NWSC) but there are still many areas that lack a drinking- water supply. Available water sources are not fully utilized. Due to this, different parts of Kirtipur especially Salyansthan is facing extreme shortage of drinking water.
