Meghalaya to invest Rs 400 crores for creating reservoirs

Shillong, Jan 30 (UNI) Chief Minister, Conrad K. Sangma, announced on Tuesday that his government will be investing approximately Rs 400 crores in the next three years in creating reservoirs across Meghalaya.
Inaugurating the Mawrah Multi-Purpose Water Reservoir in the East Khasi Hills district, Sangma said the conservation of water bodies and the creation of reservoirs are on the agenda of the government.
Pointing out that only about 4-5 percent of rainwater is retained by the state and the rest flows to neighbouring states and countries, the Chief Minister said, “And therefore, creating reservoirs is the only way to retain the rainwater.”
