Parts of city to face water-cuts from Thursday

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

This is bad news for Mumbaikars.  In the very first week of the New Year, various parts of the city and suburbs will be facing water-cuts from Thursday, January 6 till Saturday, January 8.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has undertaken the job of replacing the main trunk  at the Maroshi-Vakola-Ruparel College tunnel, due to which various parts of the city will have to go without water on different days from January 6.

“There will be no water supply in a few areas of South Mumbai including Cuffe Parade, Colaba, Nariman Point, Fort and Churchgate on January 6 and 8. On January 7, there will be no water supply at Kalbadevi, Girgaum, Thakurdwar, C.P. Tank and Mumbai Central,” the Municipal Commissioner told PTI on Tuesday.

Also, there will be no water in Jogeshwari and Andheri (East) areas on January 6, and in Versova, Yari Road, Andheri-Vile Parle (West), Santacruz and Bandra (East) and MIDC on January 7. On January 8, no water will be supplied to Andheri (West) and Vile Parle (East), he said.

The work of fixing the 2,400 mm valve on 2,500 mm Bhandup-Maroshi main as part of the Maroshi-Vakola-Mahim-Ruparel tunnel project is proposed to be executed from January 6 to 9. The line will have to be isolated for 72 hours for this.

During the isolation period, parts of South Central Mumbai will have to face 50 per cent water cut. The western suburbs of Goregaon and Malad will face 10 per cent water cut during these three days.

Presently, the city receives 3,350 million litres of water daily (MLD) against the demand of 4,200 MLD.
