The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), on Friday, said that 65% of areas in Nagpur would receive public water supply on alternate days from January 6- February 6.
Four major leakages were found in the 27-kilometres-long pipeline, which was responsible for water supply, from Pench to Nagpur.
Corporator Pintu Zalke, Chairman of Water Works at NMC, on Friday, inspected the 27km-long-pipeline and found out that the pipeline had four major leakages at Parshivani, Itgaon and Karambhad, which resulted in the loss of water.
While speaking to Nation Next, Corporator Zalke said, We got to know about the leakages six to seven months ago but we could not take a call on it as we were in summer months and the country was under lockdown due to COVID-19. Now, as things are getting back on track and water requirement will be less in winter than in summer, we were able to call for a shutdown of the pipeline.
He further stated that water was life and they could not afford to waste it and due to the leakages, a huge amount of water was getting wasted and it was also degrading the life of the pipeline, which was a huge loss.
Speaking on the cost of the project, he said, NMC is not concerned with the cost of the project, it is already included in the tender given to ACW, which monitors all things up-to WTP Gorewada, Nagpur. ACW will bear the cost of the project.
He concluded his say by telling that 20-25 days would be required to complete all the repair works but they had shut the pipeline for 30 days to be on a safer side, till then, Nagpurkars were advised to practise water storage for their ease.
