He said soon after any information of leakage, the old pipe lines are being instantly changed.
CWASA chief Engr.AKM Fazlullah also said the age-old rundown supply lines cannot withstand the huge pressure of the increased supply of water.

AKM Fazlullah also said that Chittagong WASA could not undertake any project after 1987 and with the launching of the mega project, the city dwellers would get more 143 million liters of water (MLD) per day which will cover about 70 percent of the total demand of water.  He further said two more water treatment plants will be installed by 2020 aimed at cent percent supply to the total demands of the city dwellers.
