|Dysfunctional transformer hits water supply|
GUWAHATI, Feb 14 - Water supply in Chandmari, Kharghuli and surrounding areas of the city has been partially affected due to the transformer at the Satpukhuri water treatment plant at Uzan Bazar getting burnt.
An official of GMC said, “Supply of water is partially affected in these areas from today. As the transformer got burnt, the people will get less water, around 40 per cent, for the next three to four days. Our workers have been engaged to fix it soon. Repair work is going on full swing and normal supply of water is likely in three days.”
The Satpukhuri water treatment plant has a capacity of 22.5 MLD. However, the GMC has appealed for patience and urged the people to use water judiciously.
