A pipeline carrying water to the town service reservoir from Tatipudi burst near Sri Kanya theatre on Thursday evening.

This led to a huge quantity of water flooding the road for about 100 m. “It is caused by a major valve malfunction and is being repaired,” Superintendent Engineer (Water Supply) V. Chandraiah said. However, there would not be any interruption in the water supply and, if necessary, alternative sources would be utilised to draw water, he added.
