Water supply hit for 3 days

Staff Reporter

ERODE: The water supply in Vellakoil has been affected for the past three days due to damage in the main pipe.

The Vellakoil municipal town gets water from the Cauvery river under the Kodumudi-Vellakoil Cauvery comprehensive water supply scheme and daily 20 lakh litres of water is supplied to the residents. Similarly, from the Amaravathy river also five lakh litres of water is pumped daily and supplied to the residents.

Three days back, suddenly water started gushing from the main line following which on inspection the municipal officials noticed a breakage in the pipe.

Pumping stopped

Immediately, the pumping of water was stopped and the supply was curtailed temporarily. The repair works are being carried out for the past three days and it is expected that it may take a day or two for the work to be completed. Regular water supply would be resumed from April 24.
