Mumbai Suffers 25% Water Cut After Pipe to Lake Bursts, PTI Says

Aug. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Authorities in Mumbai, home to Bollywood stars and 12.5 million people, imposed an immediate 25 percent cut in city water supplies today when a pipeline from a lake ruptured, Press Trust of India said, citing the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai.

The Indian metropolis hopes to complete the repair work to one of seven lakes that supply water to the financial capital and restore full supplies by tomorrow night.

Because the pipeline that supplies water to the city from Tansa Lake burst at Vartak Nagar, a 25 percent water cut was imposed in the western, eastern and southern parts of the city, Deputy Municipal Commissioner Ramesh Bambale told PTI. The agency five days earlier ceased water cuts imposed on July 3 on Mumbai due to poor June rainfall that had been halved to 10 percent on July 30 after a downpour.
