Bokaro: Aiming to provide safe and clean drinking water to the villagers Vedanta-Electrosteel Steels Limited (ESL) installed solar-powered water pumps in four villages of Chandankiyari under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Solar-powered water pumps were installed at Alkusa, Chandha, Babugram and Siyaljori villages were inaugurated by their Sristidhar Rajwar, a member of Zila Parishad, Poonam Toppo OC Siyaljori Police Station, Kashi Nath Sekhar and Veena Devi village chiefs respectively.
While inaugurating the solar pump Poonam Toppo said, this is a very good initiative from the company, now the villagers can get clean and safe drinking water.
Speaking on the occasion Sristidhar Rajwar said there is a lot of water scarcity not only in the district but across the state too, so we should also pay attention to water conservation and prevent wastage of water.
Every person on earth needs water to survive. Without it, many of us would get sick and even result in death. While almost 70 per cent of the earth is made up of water, many parts of the world suffer from clean water shortage. Conserving water is important because it keeps water pure and clean while protecting the environment, he said.
We are committed to the holistic development of the surrounding villages. Our company is working on several developmental works in many surrounding villages, said a PR official of ESL.
Conserving water means using our water supply or sources wisely and be responsible. As every individual depends on water for livelihood, we must learn how to keep our limited supply of water pure and away from pollution, said the official.
“Keeping our water supply safe and pure will protect the water for the generations to come,” he added.
