Water supply disrupted again
Water supply disrupted again.
Aurangabad: City’s water distribution system was once again brought to its knees on Thursday after a civic body contractor — laying drainage line in Kham River — accidentally broke the main supply line.
This led to disruption in supply in the Chaoni Cantonment area where residents could not get tap water, while those receiving water through tankers were also affected.
"We could not fill the main pump from where we supply water to the entire area.
The system of water supply through tankers was also disturbed due to non-availability of water," he said.
The officer said it was the contractor’s responsibility to carry out the repair work.
"We have asked the contractor to restore the line as it broke while the work of Aurangabad Municipal Corporation’s drainage line was going on.
Our main pipeline is also passing through the same location," he said.
However, the supply system in the area is not up to the mark as all consumers get tap water every alternate day.
Further the board which is executing a project of laying internal pipelines in the area is moving at snail’s pace.
