The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has directed citizens to boil drinking water before use, as the water might get polluted due to the flood by heavy rainfall in the Bhandup water treatment plant. But, the condition was restored by the evening.
“Necessary repairs were made after inspecting the plant concerned. After this, all the necessary technical procedures were followed and the pumps were started accordingly. As soon as the plant was started, water supply has been restored in many parts of the city, including the western suburbs, since Sunday evening,” BMC said.
The Bhandup Water Treatment Plant is operating in phases, and the water supply for the afternoon water supply in the Mumbai area has also started in phases.
On Sunday, due to heavy rains and floods in the Bandup Water Purification Complex area, the filtration and pumping equipment, and the power supply system of the water purification center had to be shut down.
The affected areas from water supplies were: Chapel Road Complex in H/West Division, Khardanda, Mograpada in K/East Division, East Parle Complex, Yari Road in K/West Division, Madh in P/North Division, Gandhinagar, Bimbisar Complex in P/South Division, Thakur Complex in R/South Division, Lokhandwala Complex, R / Dahisar area in North Division as well as G / Southern Division Tulsi pipe Marg in the city area, Senapati Bapat Marg area.
“The system in the Bhandup complex is functioning step by step and the water supply is restored. Once again, the municipal administration is appealing to the citizens of Mumbai to boil water and drink it after the water supply is restored,” BMC said.
