WALL OF WATER TANK FALLS – INJURES 5

water-tank-2Residents are alleging poor quality of work by NMMC when the safety wall of a water tank at Turbhe stores fell injuring five people. Inaugurated only 6 months ago, the water tank at Turbhe stores in Shivshakti Nagar has become a cause of concern for the locals there. The water tank was built here to provide uninterrupted water supply to the residents of Turbhe. Initially the set up of the water tank was highly opposed by the locals as it was situated over a pile of debris. Locals allege that due to poor foundation of the wall, it collapsed injuring five people in the process. Alleging poor quality by NMMC, the locals voiced their concern with NMTV News. The Deputy Municipal Commissioner of NMMC Ahlat also arrived on site with the police. Although he accepted that the situation was indeed dangerous, he refuted the allegations of NMMC carrying out poor quality of work. While the DMC will set up an enquiry committee in the matter, it is necessary that measures are taken to repair the deteriorating walls of the water tank to avoid any further accidents.
