Mumbai Water Cut

Mumbai Water Cut: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has said that some parts of A Ward will lose water for eight hours on Saturday, May 11. This is because water levels across Maharashtra have dropped dangerously.

BMC plans to cut off water in these areas tomorrow.

Colaba, Koliwada, and Navi Nagar will not have any water between 3:30 PM and 11:30 PM while a 1200 mm-diameter water pipe on Jeevan Bima Road is being fixed.

Water leakage was reported earlier at the channel due to ongoing Metro 3 construction near the Mantralaya Building.

The 1200 mm diameter water pipe used to supply water to A Ward of the BMC was inspected after reports of low pressure and reduced supply were received.

Near the Mantralaya Building on Jeevan Bima Road, a leak was discovered in the water channel during Metro 3 construction.

It was determined that water waste and potential flooding of the roads could be prevented by immediate repair of the leak by the BMC’s emergency repair department.

According to Mid-Day, the repair work is expected to take approximately 7 to 8 hours.

Furthermore, the BMC has worked with the Marine Drive Traffic Police to secure the necessary permissions.

The excavation will begin at 9 AM, but the actual repairs will begin at 3:30 PM. During these eight hours, the regular water supply to Colaba, additional special water supply to Koliwada, and extra special water supply to the Naval area will be suspended.

Consequently, residents have been urged to store enough water.

Parts of Kandivali and Borivali were affected by another water cut earlier this month.

BMC suspended water supply on May 2 and 3 due to a pipeline replacement between Mithi Chowky junction and Mahavir Nagar junction, which was expected to take 24 hours.

As a result of the water cut, water levels in seven lakes across the state have significantly dropped to 16.48 percent.

The BMC government has told people to be careful with their water use and said that there will be enough water until July 31.

It is still a new low, though, since it was 22.25 percent in 2023 and 25.80 percent in 2022.
