Residents of Mandaveli and this neighborhood zone say that though the disrupted water supply via pipeline served by Metrowater has now resumed the water seems to bear a strong smell of chemicals and so they are not sure if this water is fit for drinking.
Supply was disrupted from 4 Dec till 28 Dec 2015 because of a broken pipeline.
Shankar, a resident of Norton 2nd Street, Mandaveli says ” There is no proper response form Metrowater. This chemical smell makes the water completely unusable as the stench lingers
on in one’s body and utensils that are washed with it.”
