The BWSSB is fixing a leakage in the main transmission water pipeline from Thorekadanahalli (TK Halli) to the city.
When completed, the Cauvery Water Supply Scheme Stage 5 project will supply 775 million litres of water per day as well as lay a sewerage network.
Despite the BWSSB increasing pumping of water to the City early this month, complaints of shortage of water perplexed many.
A pressure pump has been readied by BWSSB, and electrification too is in place but it has not been made functional.
Beginning Tuesday (April 6), 1,468 to 1,475 Million Litres Per day of water was being pumped.
The BWSSB was pumping water to the tune of 1140 to1142 MLD from the Thoraikadanahalli reservoir until last week
With summer fast approaching, the Water Board is gearing up to meet any e challenges Bengalureans could face due to possible water shortage.
A nodal officer on behalf of the water department has been taking part in discussions with the State government and Aero India organisers.
The move will benefit the environment as the treated water is being utilized for recharge of groundwater, apart from numerous non-potable purposes.
At present, BWSSB pumps 1,450 MLD (million litres of water per day) to the city from TK Halli.
Another AE in the unaccounted-for water department and an executive engineer in the new initiatives department, too, are facing a similar dilemma.
Yarayya was one of the manual scavengers who was hurriedly roped in to clean a manhole on the Kaggadaspura main road past midnight on Monday.
BWSSB had issued a notice to the company, warning it that its bills would not be cleared if the work is not proper.
The supervisor who also died in the incident, was allegedly pressurised to fix the manhole in CV Raman Nagar by Ramky contractors.
