(vi)WATER SUPPLY

The water supply at Kanchrapara Workshop is provided by taking surface water from the river Ganga by means of 04 nos. Horizontal Shaft pumps of capacity 1 Lakh GPH each. The river water is stored at 05 nos. open ground tanks of total capacity 5X12 = 60 Lakh Gallons. Two nos. separate water filtration plants filter the raw water taking from the ground tanks and fed the filtered water to both Loco and Carriage complex. In addition to that, the filtered water is also fed to Dangapara colony and KPA Rly Hospital. There is inter-connectivity between the two filtration Plants which can cope –up water supply in case of failure of one plant.

In addition to above filtration plants, there are 08 nos. Submersible pump sets of capacity -20,000 GPH each provided in different colonies to supply water in colonies as mentioned below.
