Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority to replace old water pipeline

The official said that it was felt by top GMDA officials that the pipeline, which was laid about 40 years ago, needs to be replaced by new and higher capacity pipeline of 1300 mm to improve water supply in old Gurugram.
Two weeks ago, the pipeline developed a major leakage near Sector 4/5 roundabout causing an acute water supply crisis in areas, such as Ashok Vihar, Palam Vihar, Laxman Vihar and sectors 4, 5, 21, 22, 23 and others.(HT Photo)

Illegal connections face no action as Pune readies for dry Thursdays

The move to stop water supply was taken by the PMC in order to conduct ‘maintenance work’.
While the civic body has been maintaining that the water cut is strictly to replace the 35-year-old main trunk line, running from Parvati to Bajirao road, with a new pipeline, city activists have questioned PMC’s move which comes at a time when the city is facing the threat of water shortage.(HT FILE PHOTO)
