Water supply

Water supply has been affected as the  MCC officials have taken  up the repair works to plug a leakage in the main water supply pipeline at Pumpwell. This 1000 mm diameter mild steel pipeline which was first laid in 1971 supplies water  from Thumbay vented dam to the  Bendoor water treatment plant. The leakage arose due to corrosion of the pipeline which passes  through a culvert  at Pumpwell.

An MCC officer also informed that the  repair work was taken up in the wake of the proposal to construct a parallel bridge in the area to ease traffic congestion.The bridge is proposed to come up at an estimated cost of Rs 50 lakh while a bus terminus would also come up nearby.
