In view of the strike of Electricity employees hitting water supply, GVMC will send tankers to areas which are not covered in the regular supply owing to the crippling power shortage.
A helpline (phone no. 2746672) has been set up at Town Service Reservoir (TSR) Complex for the purpose. People needing a tanker may call.
A GVMC release said the desk would work round-the-clock and people may call anytime. Eighty tankers have been kept ready at 20 filling stations and will be sent to the area from the respective stations.
Municipal Commissioner M.V. Satyanarayana on Wednesday visited pump houses at Tatichetlapalem and Mindi. At Kanithi balancing reservoir, he found valves were not functioning. He asked officials to get the not working pumping motors repaired.
