Private agency to test Citys borewells
The Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) will outsource the testing of borewells in the City to a private agency. Tenders have been called for the work, which is expected to begin in a fortnight, BWSSB chairperson G Latha Krishna Rao told Deccan Herald. "We have a laboratory, but it is impossible to test all the parameters because of the huge number of borewells involved. Staff shortage is also an issue,' she said. Testing the potability of water is one parameter the BWSSB accords great importance to, she added.
