Water supply hit in Kukatpally, Serilingampally areas

Due to depletion of water levels in Manjeera barrage, the Phase-I and the Phase-II scheme which are providing water to city is stopped on Tuesday. Due to this the supplies to Kukatpally and some Serilingampally areas are affected.

By Wednesday, to these areas 14 Mgd from Godavari and 5 Mgd from Krishna Phase-III from Prashashan Nagar are planned to be supplemented. On war footing basis, required junction works are being done at Lingampally & KPHB.

Tankers are being deputed from other divisions to provide extra trips in these areas to provide minimum drinking water requirements. The critical supply areas for next two days are KPHB, Bhagyanagar section, Banjara Hills, Yousufguda, Erragadda, Borabanda. This crisis will overcome in week days on further supplementation from Godavari source, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board said. (INN)
