Mumbai: There will be five per cent water cut across the city’s western suburbs and a few parts of the island city on Wednesday, according to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). Officials from the civic body stated that the water cut will be implemented for the day due to the testing and commissioning of a 2.5-mw vertical solar power generation plant in Bhandup Complex.

“The expansion work in the old pumping station in Bhandup will be carried out between 8 am and 10 am. It includes installation of two vacuum circuit breakers at the site,” said an official from the water department of the BMC.
