Due to ongoing work of removing silt from the pump strainers at two pumping stations under Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) jurisdiction, the civic body has announced that there will be inadequate and irregular water supply for the next three days starting today, July 9.

Due to heavy rainfall in the Bhatsa dam area, large amounts of silt, garbage, and tree branches have accumulated in the river bed at Thane civic body’s Pise pumping station and STEM Authority’s Shahad pumping station.

Owing to this, pumping is not happening at full capacity, and the purification process is being adversely affected.

In an official statement, the municipal corporation said that in both the pumping stations, the desilting of pump strainers is going on at war level. However, due to decreasing water supply, a problem has arisen in filling the water bodies in the municipal sector to their full capacity.

There are problems in filling the water tanks in the municipal area to full capacity. Therefore, citizens are kindly requested to note that there will be inadequate and irregular water supply in the Thane Municipal Corporation area for the next three days, July 9, 10, and 11.

The Thane civic officials have also urged people to use water sparingly and cooperate with the municipal corporation.
