Mumbai: No water supply in these areas from 10 am today as BMC undertakes repair work
The BMC will be replacing the 1,200-mm-diameter valve at the Bandra outlet of Part 2 of Veravalli Reservoir 3 from 10 am on Tuesday
The repair work will start at 10 am and will continue till 10 pm, according to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation
There will be no water supply in several parts of Mumbai due to repair work on pipeline distribution on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Delhi Jal Board (DJB) vice-chairman Raghav Chadha has accused the Haryana government of reducing the water supply to the national capital and causing a severe crisis in the city.
The Aam Aadmi Party legislator said Haryana was providing 120 mgd (million gallons daily) water less, which has decreased the production of water in Delhi by over 100 mgd.
The AAP MLA said that in summers, Delhi's water production used to be between 900 and 920 mgd. This year, the DJB did "a record production and took this to 945 mgd", he said.
Chadha added that water levels of the Yamuna river at the Wazirabad barrage have hit the lowest point in 56 years as Haryana has withheld Delhi's legitimate share of water.
However, the Haryana government accused the AAP government of indulging in a "false political rhetoric to hide its failure".
"The shortage of water in Delhi is totally internal mismanagement of Delhi and Haryana has no role in it," it said, adding the people of the national capital are facing scarcity of water "as there is less water in the Yamuna river due to delay in monsoon and due to poor system of water management in Delhi."
