Jhansi. The people of the metropolis will face water crisis for ten days. This crisis has arisen due to the burning of panels of Matatila Power House. Now for the supply of water from Matatila Dam, the motors will be run from the generator. Now the generator will not create that much pressure. The second generator will not even be able to run full time. There will be water shortage from 21st July.
As an alternative arrangement, a 320 KVA generator has been installed by the Jal Nigam office for drinking water supply. But it is not possible to get 24 hours water supply from the generator. Due to this the water supply will be interrupted. Keeping the problem in mind, people have been asked to maintain alternate water system, as it may take ten days for the power house to become operational.
The breakers and panels of Matatila’s power house have been burnt. It may take up to ten days to get it fixed. A letter has been written to District Magistrate Lalitpur.
