India - Water Supply - Metrowater lets pipe leak for two weeks in Chennai

Metrowater lets pipe leak for two weeks

CHENNAI: The city is being scorched as summer approaches and drinking water is in short supply in several neighbourhoods, but the Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board ( CMWSSB) has not bothered to fix a pipeline on Anna Salai that has been leaking for more than two weeks.

The leak is causing water to stagnate in nearby streets, but Metrowater officials say they are awaiting approval from the highways department for the road work needed to repair the damaged pipeline opposite Kamaraj Hall.

Residents and shopkeepers say the pipe has been leaking every day from noon to 4pm, when water is supplied to the locality.
