Water supply to low-lying areas in the city is set to resume on Wednesday morning while supply across the city will be normalised by Thursday morning.
Taps had gone dry across the city on Tuesday as pumping of water had been stopped at T.K. Halli pumping station, about 100 km from here, since Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Ltd. (KPTCL) took up maintenance work.
“Soon after the KPTCL work was completed around 5 p.m., water pumping has resumed already and some low-lying areas will start receiving water by Wednesday morning,” said a Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) official. Water supply to the city will be completely restored by Thursday morning, the official added.
The official pointed out that due to maintenance work, pumping of water of all Cauvery water supply projects from Stage 1 to Stage 4 -Phase 2 had been stopped and that that affected water supply in the city on Tuesday.
“There will be no uniformity in supply of water on Wednesday though low-lying areas will get the supply. However, supply will be normalised by Thursday morning,” the official said.
