Pran Dhara
gallery history

It has been experienced during relief works that water pouches produced through Mobile Treatment Units (MTU) are very useful for easy distribution of drinking water to the stranded people, but this type of packaging is not sustainable for a long time and also may get damaged due to leaking/bursting of poly packs. To overcome these difficulties, the Public Health Engineering Department (PHED) introduced bottled water named Pran Dhara .  For the first time this type of Package Drinking Water Plant was installed at Dakshin Roypur Water Treatment Plant Complex in the year 2012-13 in accordance with BIS Specifications. The capacity of this plant is 3600 Bottles of 1000 ml. or 500 ml. per hour. After successful commissioning of the Plant, another 7 (Seven) nos. Package Drinking Water Plants have been installed in different locations of West Bengal.
