As the farmers are heavily dependent on the electricity powered submersible tube wells which they use as per their convenience, officials are finding it difficult to persuade farmers to use the treated water. “If we are facing such a problem now when farmers need much water for paddy crop, it will be difficult to the put the water to irrigation use when the demand is less during the harvesting season or wheat cultivation,” said an official of the Soil and Water Conservation Department. Officials say a water channel is required to make use of the treated water. MLA OP Soni, who had inaugurated the plant yesterday, said, it would help ...
