What is the repair work that will be undertaken?

The cause of the water cut is the work that will be undertaken for the Metro construction. During this time period, Shahad Temghar (STEM) water resource company will be shut. The valves at Hardas Nagar under Metro work will be shifted on Thane Municipal Corporation's 1100 mm diameter aqueduct and replacement of cross-connection valve on the main canal under Saket Bridge.

The corporation has requested people to use water only when essential and make alternative arrangements or store water for the time that the supply will be cut. 

Earlier, The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had announced that some parts of Prabhadevi, Lower Parel, Mahim and Dadar will not get water supply or low-pressure supply on December 2 and 3. Reason for this water cut was that the civic body will use this time to fix leakages in a British-era 1,450mm Tansa water main at Gawde Chowk on Senapati Bapat Road.
