Water supply to be hit in parts of City for a week

The areas to be affected are BTM Layout, J P Nagar, Shakambarinagar, HSR Layout, Electronic City, Bellandur, Domlur, K R Puram, Marathahalli, ITPL and HAL areas.

Areas which will be less affected are Chandra Layout, Vijaynagar, Mahalakshmi Layout and Rajajinagar constituency, Malleswaram, Yelahanka, Sahakarnagar, Kengeri and Rajarajeshwarinagar.

T Venkataraju, BWSSB Chief Engineer (Maintenance) said that these areas received water on alternate days.

"There could be less supply of water in these areas. The problem could persist for a week as the repair work needs to be stabilised," he said.

According Narayan, BWSSB's Chief Engineer (Cauvery), there was already a 'bulk flow meter' installed near Gubbalala and due to some excavation work the cables of the sensor rods of the flow meter were damaged.

"We repaired the bulk flow meters, but the valve line was not covered properly. When a JCB went on the slab during one of the works, it broke the valve completely resulting in flow of water.  We cannot repair the flow meter, unless water is completely drained out.  We are in the process of repairing it and will complete the repair work by Thursday night," he said.

The water pumps need to be switched off during the repair work due to which water
supply will be affected in parts of the City for few days, he added.
