Water supply to be hit in capital tomorrow

Water supply to city areas will be disrupted on Wednesday due to a 12-hour shutdown planned on two water treatment plants at Aruvikkara for carrying out modernisation works, the Kerala Water Authority (KWA) said.

The 72-mld and 75-mld plants will remain shut from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. If the work is over by 8 p.m., pumping will restart at 9 p.m., restoring supply to low-lying areas by Wednesday night. Supply to high-line areas will be restored by Thursday morning, the KWA said.
