Mumbai: Water supply was restored here on Thursday morning, a day after taps ran dry in the country's commercial capital, which faced a 100 per cent supply cut for the first time in a century.

The supply was cut off from 10 a.m. on Wednesday for repairs and connecting pipelines to a filtering plant.

Work successful

"Supply has been restored in all areas as the work was completed successfully last [Wednesday] night. The next phase of the project will take place in January," Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation sources saidhere.

On Wednesday, hospitals put routine surgeries on hold and hotels and other commercial establishments ordered tanker supply.

Additional supply

The city receives 3,200 million litres of water a day and the repairs will mean an additional supply of 355 mld. — PTI
