In a recent announcement, officials from the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) informed that the water supply in Thane, Ghodbunder and parts of Mumbra will be cut off on Friday, June 12, 2020. As per reports, authorities have planned pre-monsoon repair works which will be undertaken by STEM - a body that supplies around 100 million litres of water every day to Thane Municipal Corporation area. 

Due to the repair work, there will be no water supply for 12 hours in the localities on Friday, and, officials have divided these into two categories.

  • Water supply will be cut from 9 am to 9 pm on Friday at Ghodbunder Road, Patlipada, Kasarvadvali, Pawarnagar, Kothari Compound, Azadnagar, Dongripada, Waghbil, Ovala, and Mumbra.
  • Water supply will be closed from 9 pm on Friday to 9 am on Saturday at Siddheshwar Lake, Samtanagar, Dosti, Aakriti, Johnson, Eternity, Jail Premises, Saket, Ritupark.

The shutdown will result in a low-pressure water supply for the next one to two days. However, the supply of NMMC's scheme, MIDC and Mumbai Municipal Corporation will continue. 

Thane along with nearby districts are currently under lockdown due to coronavirus outbreak. As per directives from the state government, these districts will be observing the lockdown until June 30, however, certain relaxations have been permitted from June 5. As of June 10, Thane had a total of 6,703 cases.

The tally across the state of Maharashtra has been increasing exponentially, and despite the guidelines, people have been flouting social distancing norms in several cities. Keeping this in mind, CM Uddhav Thackeray shared that if the people do not follow the rules, the situation may worsen, and the government will have to impose the lockdown again, extending it from June 30.
