Chennai Metrowater has resumed water supply from Chembarampakkam reservoir. A press release said that the supply was disrupted since Monday after one of the inlets in the intake tower from where water is drawn, collapsed.
A shutter weighing three tonnes has been provided in the intake tower to control water being drawn and transferred to the nearby treatment plant.
Officials of Metrowater and Water Resources Department carried out rectification work. Seawater divers were engaged to lift the shutter on Tuesday night. Distribution of water supply has been restored since Thursday.
