A pipeline supplying Cauvery water to Manapparai and Marungapuri burst leading to water gushing out near Pannankombu on Saturday.

The pipeline carries water to Manapparai and Marungapuri taluks in Tiruchi as part of the Combined Water Supply Scheme of Cauvery. On Saturday morning, the pipeline burst spraying water over a two-storey building, which was nearly 30-feet high. The water flowed for at least 30 minutes, said residents.

Locals alerted the authorities immediately. A similar incident had occurred only two weeks ago near Kavalkaranpatti, locals complained.
