Seems like Airoli residents will finally be able to find a way to fix water supply issue they’ve been facing. The construction of a new 2.3MLD ground reservoir has already begun and even better? Even a pumping station at the overhead water tank will also be in the works. They both are being constructed in sector 5, Airoli.
This new facility that costs Rs. 4.12 crores, will improve the water supply system and will help residents in almost 8 sectors of the node. In case of any emergencies, the reservoir will stock up enough water to supply for 2 days.
The other good news for Airoli residents is that now they’ll get water supply for extra half-an-hour long both in the morning and evening. Some sectors to be benefited by this development are 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 8A, 16, and 17. According to civic sources, uninterrupted water supply will be assured during the breakdown of the Morbe line.
