The state government needs to spend Rs 104 crore to repair Temghar dam close Pune. The sum spent in repairs will nearly be 33% of the sum spent to construct the dam (Rs 323 crore) six years prior. The dam, finished in 2010, began spilling from 2012.
Development of the dam was begun in 1997 and finished in 2010.Its full limit is around 3.5 TMC and it supplies water to Pune.
Be that as it may, the dam began spilling with grouting in 2012. After various grumblings, the administration set up a board of trustees under V M Ranade, resigned secretary of the watering system office. The board of trustees presented a report on June 30, suggesting that the temporary workers be boycotted and an objection documented against unreliable authorities too.
Girish Mahajan, pastor for water assets, said the administration has begun the way toward boycotting the temporary workers.
“I have educated to document a police dissension against the Andhra-based temporary workers who utilized sub-standard material for development of the dam,” said Mahajan.
At the point when gotten some information about expense of repair, Mahajan said, “We need to repair it on pressing premise. We will supply water from this dam on need to get its level down and afterward begin repair work in the following three months. The legislature will recoup the repair cost from the contractual workers, which is around Rs 103.96 crore.”
The issue was also discussed at a meeting of Maharashtra Krishna Valley Development Corporation on July 29, which accepted the Ranade committee report. The corporation also recommended that the state provide funds on an urgent basis for the repair work of the dam and the cost of repair be recovered from the
