At around 5 am, a fault occurred at Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution Company Limited (MSEDCL) incoming power supply at the treatment plant.

Nandkishor Jagtap, chief superintendent, water supply department of PMC, said, “The problem was resolved at around 4 pm. It hampered water supply to some Peth areas, Padmavati, Parvati Darshan, Bibevewadi etc.”

Arati Kamble, a resident of Bibvewadi, said, “We did not get water on Sunday. We went out for breakfast and lunch and purchased a drinking water jar.”

Parvati WTP has a capacity of 535 million litres per day. It supplies water to the heart of the city (Peth areas) and the vicinity of SNDT and Chaturshringi areas.

Parvati plant is the city’s largest capacity project, supplying water to Kothrud, Chathushringi, and Peths areas. Since the project runs 24 hours, it uses high-capacity power lines.
