Water Supply

Water Works Wing of Guwahati Municipal Corporation caters the need of water in the city area. Guwahati Municipal Corporation has three water supply treatment plants at Panbazar, Satpukhuri and Kamakhya. Water is pumped from river Brahmaputra to these plants and after processing in the plant water is pumped to different reservoirs located at hill tops and then distributed to the consumers by gravity main. Some areas are supplied through direct pumping also. Beside these plants there are 9 (nine) deep tube wells at different locations. Installed capacity and present running capacity of each plant are as indicated below.
