Thane Municipal Corporation Announces Water Cuts for K Villa Nala Bridge Construction

Thane, 23rd April 2024: Thane Municipal Corporation announced on Monday the necessity to relocate the primary water distribution channel supplying water to the Uthalsar ward committee. Consequently, the corporation will implement water cuts in certain areas of the city. This action stems from the need to shift from the jail water tank to the main distribution channel, as the former was obstructing the progress of the K Villa Nala bridge construction.

The water supply department will undertake this relocation work on April 25, resulting in a complete shutdown of water supply from the Uthalsar ward jail aquifer from 9:00 am on Thursday until the same time the following day.

“The relocation of the main distribution channel supplying water from the jail water tank to the main distribution channel is imperative for the progress of the K Villa Nala bridge,” stated the TMC’s notification regarding the water cut in Thane.

During the scheduled period from April 25, 9:00 am, to April 26, 9:00 am, the following areas will experience a 24-hour water shutdown: Central Jail premises, Naupada, Akashganga, Panchganga, Uthalsar wards 1 & 2, and Police Line premises. Additionally, residents of Rabodi, Kharkar Ali, the NKT college campus, and the Thane Police High School campus will be affected.

“The water supply will be completely halted for 24 hours in Uthalsar Ward No. 1 & 2, K Villa, Kharkar Aali, Akashganga, Panchganga, Uthalsar, Central Jail Complex, Police Line Complex, Thane Police High School, NKT college campus, and parts of Naupada,” the TMC specified.

The corporation also warned of possible low water pressure for 1 to 2 days following the shutdown and urged citizens to use water judiciously and cooperate with the civic authorities.
