Following a rupture in an MIDC pipeline near Dombivli, it is being said that many parts of Thane, Navi Mumbai and Mira-Bhayender may face water issues on Sunday,
The 6-feet wide pipeline supplies water to Kalwa, Mumbra and Diva in TMC areas and also to stretches between Airoli and Ghansoli in Navi Mumbai in addition to Mira-Bhayender.
As soon as the leakage started, the area was filled with water forcing traffic on the Kalyan-Shil highway to come to a complete standstill.
MIDC engineers rushed to the spot and managed to shut the supply from the nearby valve. The rupture will take a long time to be repaired till when the supply will also remain shut, informed a MIDC official.
