On June 9, at 6 am, the team members of the Water Resources Department will enter the water to improve the leakage of Tighra reservoir. They will stay in the reservoir for 12 hours and do the work of rectifying the leakage. For this, the supply of water from the dam to the four water treatment plants of the corporation will be stopped. Only that much water will be able to come during the shutdown, which would have been released earlier in the pipeline. Due to non-availability of water, it would be difficult to fill the water tanks built in 60 wards. Due to this, more direct supply will be affected in the evening of 9th June. At the same time, water will not be able to reach many areas till June 10.
PHE’s assistant engineer Hemant Sharma said that the work of pointing under water is being done by divers. Divers are facing difficulty in carrying out repairs near the sluice due to high water suction near the sluice due to the sluice gate being open. The Water Resources Department will close the sluice gate for 12 hours for this. Because of this, on June 9, the direct water supply system will be completely closed in Ward 52, 55 Hanuman Pahadi and Gupteshwar area. There will be no water supply in areas like Gola temple, water supply from Sagartal, Birla Nagar, Vayu Nagar, Kavi Nagar, Rachna Nagar etc.
Drinking water supply will be affected in these areas
Water supply will start on June 9 at 6 pm. It will take 4 hours for water to reach Motijheel and Jalalpur treatment plant from the dam. Although water supply can start in an hour at Tighra Water Treatment Plant. Even after this, on June 10, water will be partially supplied from Rakkas Tank, Mudia Pahar, Amkho, New Gorkhi, Old Gorkhi, New Shanti Nagar, Nimbaji Ki Khoh, Islampura etc. tanks under Gwalior and South assembly constituencies. On this day, the water supply system will be partially affected from all the water tanks under Gwalior East and Gwalior assembly constituencies.
