Water pipeline bursts at Dadar

Thousands of litres of water was wasted after a pipeline burst at Dadar. The incident took place near the Portuguese church, Dadar at around 2.30 pm on Friday (November 20). Post the burst, the water was gushing out to three-storey height.  

From what we have learnt, the water continued to flow for 45 minutes before things were brought it control. The exact reason for the pipeline burst is not known.

The civic workers immediately closed the main valve and started the water supply from the alternative water pipeline. The repair work of this pipe is being done by the Assistant Engineer Water Works (Emergency Repair Department-Worli). As water supply has been shifted to an alternative pipeline, the residents of Dadar will not have to face water cuts.

Talking to Mumbai Live, Jeevan Patil, Assistant Engineer, Water Works Department, informed that the water supply in the area will not be disrupted. 

Kiran Dighavkar, Asst. Commissioner of G-North ward said, "Normally pipeline can burst due to an increase in pressure of the water or if it is old, temporary we have attended the site and its under control. Water supply will not be affected in the area."

However, at this time it is not certain how much time will go in repairing this pipeline.
