Salcete, Mormugao on restricted water-supply for two more days

Salcete and Mormugao talukas had received restricted water supply on Friday due to a sudden break down of a pump at Selaulim water treatment plant late Thursday evening. However, this concern is expected to continue since water supply will be restricted to both Talukas on Saturday and Sunday, a statement issued by the office of the executive engineer, works division IX, said.

Most people in the two talukas are readying for Christmas and the restriction in water supply will adversely impact preparations, sources said.

PWD superintending engineer SR Paranjape said that of the eight pumps at the dam, one of the two large ones had broken down. He added that while repair work on the pump was underway, arrangements were being made to bring experts from Mumbai to look into the matter.

The Selaulim water treatment plant supplies water to Mormugao, Salcete, Quepem and Sanguem talukas.
