Water supply to almost all parts of the city except to the Fort Kochi region was disrupted till 2 pm on Thursday following disruption of power supply to Aluva Pump House.

Kerala Water Authority (KWA) officials said that pumping resumed by 2 pm on Thursday. “Pumping was disrupted due to power failure at KWA’s pump house at Aluva. As there was no power supply, water purification did not take place resulting in disruption of water supply to the city,” Kerala Water Authority officials said.

KWA officials said the problem was identified in the wee hours of Thursday. “A damage was detected in the cable end box on the line supplying power to three pump houses. The damage usually occurs due to the heavy moisture in the atmosphere. It was rectified by the KWA team by 1.30 pm and pumping resumed soon after,” officials of the Aluva Division said.
