High-Level Team of NEEPCO To Visit Kapili Hydro-Power Today


Four workers of Kapili Hydro-power still went missing on its third day after a pipeline carrying water to the 275 MW hydel project in Dima Hasao district burst on Monday.

Four persons still feared trapped inside a pump. Although the water level in the Kapili River rises due to the burst of water pipe, it reduced a bit on Wednesday.

A high-level team of NEEPCO will visit the hydro-power project today to take stock of the situation.

The pipe supplies 12000 liters of water per second from the NEEPCO reservoir to Kapili hydro-power. The repairing work of the pipe was done last year and after that, no repairing was done resulting in the break-down of the pipe causing injury to many people.

According to reports, the pipe breaks down in the same place where the repairing was done.
