Mumbai: Residents of Mumbai, particularly those residing in the K East, K West, and P South ward, will face a temporary disruption in water supply. Scheduled between May 29th and 30th, this maintenance operation by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) involves connecting main water lines and removing old damaged water lines. Lasting for 16 hours, the operation aims to bolster the city's water infrastructure for sustained and improved supply in the future. During this period, certain areas will experience a complete shutdown of water supply, while others will contend with reduced water pressure. These measures are necessary to facilitate the essential maintenance activities.

Previously, on May 16, the BMC had announced a water cut for May 22 and 23, which was subsequently called off. The BMC has now rescheduled the water cut to take place once again. Civic body has announced plans for essential maintenance work in the K East ward of Andheri (East). This operation entails the connection of two main water channels: a 1500 mm diameter water channel and a new 1200 mm diameter water channel (known as the Parle outlet). The work will be carried out from Sawant Marg and Cardinal Gracious Marg Junction to Cardinal Gracious Marg and Sahar Marg Junction. Additionally, an old undamaged 1200 mm diameter water channel will be removed during this process.

Chief Of Hydraulic Engineering Department of BMC Purushottam Malavade, "We advise citizens of the concerned area to use water sparingly and responsibly. Additionally, as a precautionary measure after the water supply is restored, the municipal administration appeals to filter and boil the water for 4 to 5 days. Our work will finish in time; it is summertime, and water is the most important thing, so store accordingly. But the repair has to be done; it will only make the supply for these regions better than ever."
