Wanaparthy: Minister for Agriculture S Niranjan Reddy laid the foundation stone for construction of a water quality testing lab in Wanaparthy town on Wednesday. The four-room laboratory being constructed with all the equipment needed to test drinking water as part of Mission Bhagiratha in the district, would soon become the centre for testing the drinking water in village overhead tanks, reservoirs and other water bodies from where drinking water would be accessed.

According to Jagan Mohan, Superintending Engineer, Rural Water Supply and Sewage (RWS&S) Department, an estimated Rs 88 lakh was being spent to build the water quality testing facility, which would be constructed and become operational within a year.
