Infrastructure management & monotoring

Sound financial management is essential to achieve proper maintenance of the infrastructure. Monitoring staff are assigned to specific sections of the canals to identify leaks, blockages, siltation, etc. on a daily basis. Any issues are reported immediately to the office based water controller who then reports to the Works Manager who will send a repair team as soon as possible to attend to the case. In extreme cases the teams would work through the night to repair leaks.

As part of the maintenance of the canals, these are closed for intermittent periods lasting about 2 months in total to do cleaning (silt) and repairs on concrete and also repairs and painting of mechanical components where necessary.
