In 1990’s while constructing Temghar dam in Mulshi taluka the villagers were relocated to a remote area at a higher level from the ground.Since there was no water pipeline women in Vegare ,Dhanori and Mandavkhadak had to walk for 2kms to fetch water from a well .
After a long struggle of villagers finally came to conclusion when a water pipeline was laid and houses will be provided taps by this week
water pipeline was funded by Tellus organisation and Aadar pratishthan.
“The villages are quite remote and are situated on a mountain. The well near Mandavkhadak was built about two years ago. The water pipeline laid stretches upto 1.5 km and will cater to most of the houses. To help other hamlets in the region suffering water scarcity, we need a water pipeline upto five kilometres,” said sarpanch of Vegare Bhausaheb Markale
The total population of three villages is around 300.
” The residents of these three villages will finally have some relief, after suffering for decades. No one bothered to do anything for them. Summers, especially, had been very tough on them. This water pipeline will solve their long-standing water scarcity issue,” said Bapat.
