Residents of Mumbai will have to use water judiciously for three days starting Tuesday after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said it planned to impose a 10% water cut.
Moreover, some parts of Kurla and Chunabhatti will have to brace for a 100% water cut from 10am on Wednesday to 6pm on Thursday.
Two major works have been proposed by the civic body – one on a stretch of the 1,800mm diameter Tansa water pipeline that runs from Balkum in Thane to Mulund and another on a 1,200 mm diameter cross connection at the Santacruz Chembur Link Road in Kurla (West).
The work on the Tansa water pipeline will be undertaken from 11 am on Tuesday to 6 pm on Thursday, during which there will be a 10% reduction in water supply to the entire city.
The areas that are situated at the fag-end of distribution zones, which are usually supplied water at low pressure, will be the worst- affected during the three-day water cut.
Areas in L ward (Kurla) that will receive no water supply on Wednesday and Thursday are Kajupada, LBS Marg, CST Road, SG Barve Road, Christian village, New Mill Road, Chunabhatti, Brahmanwadi, Takia Ward and Sunderbaug. “Citizens are requested to save enough water and cooperate with the corporation,” said a press release sent by the BMC on Saturday.
