With the onset of dry season, drinking water problem has been created in the settlements of Chure area of ​​the district. With the onset of dry season in the northern Chure area of ​​the district, drinking water problem has started this year as in previous years.

Rambabu Thing, a resident of Ishwarpur Municipality-12 complained that the shortage of drinking water has started in the settlements of the area after the sources of drinking water including taps, dug wells and wells in the North Chure area started drying up. According to him, water has stopped flowing in the stream for a long time and even though they used to fetch water from river and bugar wells, now that the wells have started drying up.

Drinking water problem has been observed in Ghari Bathan of Ishwarpur-12, Guidung, Shir Phuljor, Shir Kalinjor and most of the settlements of Dhuseni, Deurali, Tinghare, Ward No. 12, 13 and 14 of Lalbandi Municipality-15 and Chure area of ​​Hariwan Municipality-1.

Janaki Maya BK of Ishwarpur-12 said that there is a problem of getting clean drinking water in the settlements at other times as well. The problem of drinking water starts from the month of Fagun in the settlements of Chure area of ​​the district and the settlements around Chure Danda. Jeevan Tamang of Ishwarpur-12 said that even though the local government was aware of the issue, the local government did not have to solve the problem.

Due to insufficient rainfall in winter this year, increasing deforestation and excavation, drinking water sources have started drying up rapidly in recent years, said the technician. During the winter months, there is drinking water problem in Bhalukhop, Kerabari, Vanmara, Beldanda, Kalinjor, Parwanipur, Narayankhola, Atrauli, Dhungekhola and other settlements in the northern Chure area of ​​the district. Local youth Tej Tamang said that they are in critical condition.

According to him, the locals of Chure have been forced to reach neighboring villages for hours to fetch a jug of drinking water. "It is very difficult for hundreds of households in the village to get drinking water now. There is only one well in the village. Even the water collected in that well is not enough for even a few houses," said Jit Bahadur Rana of Lalbandi-14 Narayankhola.

Bir Bahadur Rana of Lalbandi-12 Bhalukhop complained that it is very difficult to procure drinking water in the settlements of Churekshetra in March, April and May. Locals say that the Bagmati, Hariwan and Lalbandi municipalities have provided drinking water to some of the settlements stolen by lift technology two years ago to alleviate the shortage of drinking water.
