Officials plan to undertake a trail run of moving water by railway wagons to Chennai from Jolarpet from Tuesday. Nearly, 95 per cent of works estimated at Rs 64 crore relating to the project were completed.
When officials are satisfied with the flow, the remaining 5 per cent work, which includes connecting the OHT will be completed in a day. This will ensure that water moves to Villivakkam for decanting on Wednesday. The water from Villivakkam will then be routed to the Kilpauk water works for distribution to residential areas in Chennai.
