Malabar hill: Water cut in South Mumbai due to inspection of reservoir | Mumbai News
In a bid to facilitate Malabar Hill reservoir’s inspection amid the ongoing debate surrounding its fate, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has announced a water cut in several areas of South Mumbai division. The water cut will be enforced on Thursday when the inspection is due to be carried out.
According to civic officials, the tank will be partially emptied on December 7, seeking to aid the inspection of the reservoir’s second compartment. The inspection will be carried out by an expert panel which was formed last month, to decide whether the tank will undergo repair works or demolition. Composed of professors from IIT (Bombay), BMC engineers, as well as citizens with expertise on technical subjects, this committee will conduct an internal inspection of the compartment no. 2.
The upcoming inspection is slated to affect several pockets of South Mumbai that receive water via the century-old reservoir including ward A, C, D, G/North and G/South. Releasing a chart for the water cut, the civic body has announced a water cut ranging between 10 percent and 30 percent in several areas of the wards.
Meanwhile, a complete water cut will be imposed between 11.20 am and 1.45 pm in Ward A’s Cuffe Parade and Ambedkar Nagar on Thursday. Furthermore, in other areas such as Nariman Point, a water cut of 50 per cent will be put in place between 1.45 pm and 3 pm.
In its bulletin issued on Tuesday, the BMC said, “Besides water cuts, the water pressure will remain low in some places.”
