Welcome to the official page of Water Security, Public Health Engineering Department, Government of Sikkim. The WS & PHED is responsible for providing the essential service of potable water supply in all the urban and semi-urban areas of Sikkim. It also provides sewerage services in Gangtok.
This Website lays down principles to guide all functionaries in their dealing with the consumer of water supply and sewerage services. It also lays down the rights and responsibilities of the consumer. We aim to be an efficient, friendly and self-sustained provider of service. At the same time we also request our consumers to actively participate in our endeavors. The gap between what the Government spends in providing these services and the revenue generated has to be reduced, if we are to achieve a measure of self-sustainability. We would like the consumers to be our partners in creating a pollution free environment.
