Gravity-fed Drinking Water Service Established in Wonsan City
Wonsan, January 10 (KCNA) -- A gravity-fed drinking water service was established in Wonsan City, Kangwon Province.

The completion of the project made it possible to sufficiently supply clean drinking water not only to families but institutions, industrial establishments and other units in the city without using water pumps and electric motors.

The service was designed in such a way as to supply the water flowing from deep mountains even to high-rising buildings in the city.

The project for building a waterway tunnel was carried out through the introduction of efficient work methods. It was immediately followed by the project for widening the tunnel and covering its inside with concrete.

Projects for setting up poles in dozens of places and laying great many water pipes were also wound up in a brief span of time.

The construction of a filter-bed basin and a water reservoir was successfully completed, contributing to qualitatively winding up the overall projects earlier than scheduled as required by technical norms.
