The repairing work was going on smoothly, however sudden heavy rains in afternoon have created waterlogged situation in entire Uppalwadi RUB area.

to co-operate. Citizens also take a note that emergency shutdown on Kanhan WTP 900 mm dia main feeder line is a major shutdown wherein many ESR’s in North Nagpur especially from Aasi Nagar and Satranjiura zone will not have any water, so Water supply through Tankers will also be not possible during and after shutdown in the affected areas.
