Badlapur: Ulhas River Infringes Danger Mark, Public Services Hit

Incessant rains hit areas of Badlapur, Ambernath and its adjacent areas on Thursday. This has resulted in the Ulhas River breaching the danger mark.

Some reports state that according to the information they received from the water treatment plant responsible for the water supply in the town, Barrage Headworks, Ulhas River arrived at 17.80 meters at 4 am on Thursday. Which has crossed the danger level of 17.50 meters.

Additionally, some reports state that an official from the water treatment plant mentioned that as a precautionary action, all the pumps have been shut. This will invariably result in the irregular water supply on July 22 in Badlapur, Ambernath and Ordnance.

The heavy rainfall also resulted in the temporary curtailment of local train services between Vangani and Ambernath. This is being attributed to the submerged train tracks between Badlapur and Ambernath.

Since the last two days, residential societies near the Ulhas River have faced waterlogging, compelling its residents to make their way through waist-deep water. The civic authority, have also shifted some of the residents living in low-lying areas near the river as a safety measure.

Citizens have also been given instructions not to wade close to Ulhas River, Kondeshwar, Barvi Dam, Chikoli Dam amongst others.
