The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has announced this necessary measure due to an enforced shutdown at the Bhokarpada water treatment plant near Morbe dam.
The temporary shutdown of the Bhokarpada water treatment plant is aimed at undertaking essential maintenance and repair work. This precautionary step will help ensure the plant’s continued efficiency and the uninterrupted supply of clean and safe drinking water to the residents of NMMC nodes in the long run.
While the water cut is scheduled for May 30 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., it is essential for residents to prepare for the possibility of extended hours if the maintenance work requires additional time. The civic body is actively working to complete the necessary repairs promptly, minimizing inconvenience for residents.
During the water cut, residents are urged to plan their water usage accordingly and store an adequate amount of water for their essential needs. It is advisable to fill containers and ensure water conservation practices are observed to make the most of available resources.
Following the water cut, on May 31, residents should expect low-pressure water supply as the system gradually stabilizes after the maintenance activities. It is recommended to use water judiciously during this period until regular water pressure is fully restored.
The NMMC recognizes the inconvenience caused by this temporary disruption in water supply and assures residents that all efforts are being made to complete the maintenance work swiftly. The corporation also encourages residents to cooperate and support the conservation measures in place during this period.
Residents are advised to stay updated with official announcements from the NMMC regarding any changes or further instructions related to the water supply. Additionally, it is recommended to explore alternative water sources and make necessary arrangements to mitigate the impact of the water cut during the scheduled period.
By undertaking these essential maintenance measures, the NMMC aims to enhance the water infrastructure and ensure a reliable water supply system for the residents of Navi Mumbai in the long term.
