Activists inspect water leakage points

Mumbai: With the aim of keeping K East Ward (Andheri east) free of water leakages and making it a zero leakage zone, AGNI activists from the ward, along with BMC staff, the traffic police and contractor, carried out an inspection of water leakage points in the area on Friday. Starting from Marol Naka to Marol Maroshi Road, they found leakages in underground pipes at every 50 metres. Activists said that a valve had been damaged by the MMRDA when it dug a 12-ft wide crater near Saki Naka. “A slab had broken and this affected the valve. Water leakage is maximum from this spot. Proper fencing was also not carried out,’’ said AGNI activist James John. A civic official from the hydraulic engineering (construction) department said, “We will start work after writing to the traffic department. In cases where leakage is due to damage to the pipe in the centre of the road, we have to take permission from them,’’ he said. TNN
