Water supply affected in Supela and Chhawani area

Bhilai, May 26: Water supply remained affected in Supela, Fareed Nagar and Chhawani area on Sunday due to a major electrical fault at the 77 MLD Water Treatment Plant. At around 04:00 hrs on the day, the Drop Out Fuse was blown away at the plant due to which the high capacity pumps stopped working.
BMC Commissioner immediately instructed the concerned officials and technicians to conduct inspection and repairs for resuming water supply. The electricians, motor mechanics and engineers of Water Works Department tried to repair the fault and found that the Transformer was out of order.

Finding no other alternative, the team was sent to bring a new transformer from Raipur. Once the equipments arrive, the replacement and repair works will be conducted on war footing to resume water supply. Water supply is likely to remain affected in several areas of Bhilai on May 27 also. BMC Commissioner has appealed from the denizens to use the available water judiciously.
