The city will face a 50 per cent water cut Thursday after the Tansa pipeline burst at three places. The G-North and G-South wards,including Worli and Mahim,have been particularly affected with 100 per cent water cut Wednesday night. Wednesday,a 10 per cent water cut was in force as the pipeline was being repaired.
The repair work was completed as scheduled. Early Tuesday morning,however,the Tansa (west) pipeline burst near Agra road and water supply had to be stopped. Soon after,there were two more bursts near Chincholi and K B Bridge as water pressure increased. Citizens will face a 50 per cent water cut. We expect to complete the repair work Friday morning, said additional municipal commissioner Rajeev Jalota,in-charge of the water supply department.
