India-based contractor Larsen & Toubro (L&T) said its construction business had been awarded an engineering, procurement, and construction contract for the Gunjawani piped distribution network, including Narayanpur Lift Irrigation Scheme, from Maharashtra Krishna Valley Development Corp (WRD) in Pune, and another deal by Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Department to develop two rural piped water supply projects in Odisha’s Jharsuguda district.

Work on the Gunjawani project will involve the design, procurement, and construction of gravity mains, as well as the installation of pumping system.

The development will cover 21ha and will draw water from the Gunjawani dam.

The Odisha contract comprises design and construction activities for two intake structures, two water treatment plants, 1.7km2 of transmission and distribution pipelines, 58 overhead service reservoirs, nine booster pumping stations, and associated electromechanical and instrumentation works.

When complete, the project will provide drinking water for 273 villages in the Jharsuguda district, L&T said in a statement.
