Two major water supply lines between Thumbe vented dam and the city have been damaged at Kannur due to the dumping of construction debris and soil over them, according to J.R. Lobo, MLA, Mangaluru City South. Speaking to media after visiting the spot on Monday, he said that he had instructed the Mangaluru City Corporation officials to identify those who have dumped debris on the pipelines and file criminal complaint against them.
Mr. Lobo, a former commissioner of the corporation, said that the pipelines have developed cracks unable to bear the load as the debris have been dumped on them. The MLA said that there was a lapse on the part of the officials of the corporation who have failed to monitor dumping of debris there. He said that water supply was expected to be restored only at noon on Tuesday.
