The Public Health Engineering (PHE) department today declared a three-day water cut in the state capital from May 29.
The department today informed that due to stringing of 220 KV DC Killing-Mawngap-New Shillong Transmission Line between tower location AP-4/0 to AP 5/0 at Mawphlang by Power Grid Corporation of India (PGCIL), the dedicated 33 KV Sub Station for Greater Shillong Water Supply (GSWS) water works at Mawphlang will be affected.
“Hence, the pumping operation from the Greater Shillong Water Supply Scheme shall be placed under suspension for three days from May 29 to 31,” the PHE Department said adding that due to this, there will be no water supply from Greater Shillong Water Supply Scheme in Shillong and its adjoining areas during the three days.
“Efforts shall be made to resume the supply by June 1 and reduce shutdown time to the extent possible,” the department added.
