The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) & The Orange City Water (OCW) has now planned to take up 48-hours repair and maintenance work at Pench-II water treatment plant (WTP) between July 21 (Thursday) & 22 (Friday).

It may be mentioned here that earlier same shutdown has been planned on July 15 and July 16, however following some unavoidable technical reasons, shutdown was postponed to July 21 & 22.

It may be mentioned here, along with, planned Pench-II WTP rehabilitation work, NMC- OCW have also planned some major field works to strengthen the water supply system in the field like:

(1) Interconnection between 500mm line Trimurti Nagar line with 700mm Takli Sim Line. This will benefit in commissioning of new Trimurti Nagar ESR and resolve low pressure water supply issues at Sonegaon, Adarsh Colony , Bhoge layout & Bhamti area.
(2) Air Valve on GH-Omkar Nagar Feeder: Installation of Air Valves (2 Nos.) at Morris College T-Point and Resimbagh Sq. Benefits: Air valve installation is proposed to resolve the frequent air locking problems of the GH-Omkar feeder main
However, it must be mentioned here, during this shutdown other water treatment plants like Pench- I, Pench- III, Old Gorewada, Pench-IV at Godhani and Kanhan WTP will remain fully operational means water supply in those areas will not be affected.

The planned Rehab work at Pench-II WTP during this shutdown are as follows:

(A) Flash Mixer Inlet gate Erection.,Flash Mixer By pass gate Erection,Repairing of Filter Inlet gate No.7,8,9. Demolition of water retaining structure at raw water Inlet channel and pipe.
(B) Telescopic bleeding arrangement of Clarifier No. 1 & 2. Installation of 400mm FM and two 400mm B/F Valves of Raw water inlet line. Weir Plate of filter bed no.10,11,12 erection.

Benefits: The process part of Rehabilation of P-II WTP will be completed. Ultimately the augmentation of P-II will benefit Dhabha ESR command area and Seminary Hill old GSR and new ESR. After augmentation of P-II the Old Gorewada WTP will be abandonned and the 450mm feeder line(which is prone to leakages due to dilapilated condition) from OG to Katia Bhandar will be discarded.

In a bid to provide Nagpurians maximum relief, NMC & OCW bulk water supply management technical experts have divided the areas affected due to shut down into two parts. Because of this bulk management , even though the planned shutdown work at Pench-II WTP shall be for 48-Hrs (on July 15 &16) but effectively each of the listed areas water supply shall be affected for 24-Hrs only.
