Canal repairs interrupt water supply in evenings
Ahmedabad :Municipal water supply to a major part of the city is being interrupted during the evenings this festive season because of major repair work in the Shedi canal network. The water supply will be interrupted in the evenings for five days, said the AMC’s water supply department.
The areas likely to be affected are the west zone, north zone, central, east and south zones of the city.
Problems in water supply occur after monsoon during Dusherra each year and as a result municipal water supply has to be interrupted owing to repair works.
Repairs in the Shedi canal network are going on 24 km off Ahmedabad city. This network feeds the Raska water treatment station which then supplies drinking water to the city’s supply system.The problem has led to several protests by residents of south and central zones where there are not many private bore-wells and residents depend on municipal water supply for their water requirements.
