NAVI MUMBAI: Due to the civic body’s forced shutdown at Bhokarpada water treatment plant near Morbe dam to complete repairs and maintenance work of the main supply line between Morbe dam and Digha in anticipation of the impending monsoon, residents in NMMC nodes like Belapur, Nerul, Sanpada, Vashi, Koparkhairane, Ghansoli, and Airoli will have to prepare for water cuts lasting at least 12 hours from 10 a.m. Residents have complained about the water cutoff during the scorching summer.

Additionally, the shutdown will have an impact on the Cidco node of Kamothe and areas of Kharghar that are directly connected to the supply line for the Morbe dam. “Repair and maintenance work has been taken up in the main line and water treatment plant, which leads us to enforce a 12 hour shutdown, as a pre-monsoon preparation,” NMMC city engineer Sanjay Desai said.

Residents complained that losing water without making other plans was inconvenient for them. Only 30% of the dam’s stock, which can only last until the first week of August, is present, according to the NMMC study. The city authority will favour additional limiting of water supplies in the event that monsoon arrives later than expected. As a result of the nodal wise rationing mechanism, residents are currently experiencing one weekday without supply.
