Residents and commuters were taken off guard on Wednesday at around 3 p.m. when a 1,200 mm water pipeline broke in front of Twinkle Apartments on Adarsh Nagar Road, causing a significant water spurt that reached a height of about eight stories.
Hydraulic engineers from the K West ward as well as officers and workers from the water engineering division of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) were on the scene right away.
By cutting off the channel's supply, the leaking of water was halted, and the water channel's repair work began right away.
As per reports, the neighbourhoods of Millat Nagar, SVP Nagar Mhada, and Lokhandwala will not be able to access water till the repair is finished. According to hydraulic engineer Purshottam Malwade, two areas in Millat Nagar and Lokhandwala will experience problems with their water supply.
"Repair work has already begun, and once it is finished, water will be delivered. Only once the pipe has been completely dewatered and the reason for the pipe burst is known can our engineers evaluate the issue," said an official.
