<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>After noise pollution, the residents of Churchgate and Cuffe Parade are irked with the supply of contaminated water to their houses. Residents of Moti Mahal building at J Tata Road in Churchgate were shocked to know that the water which is supplied to their building is unfit for human consumption. They claim that since work on the underground Metro-3 project has begun, they are getting contaminated water. DNA had reported on September 19 that BMC’s A ward, which comprises Churchgate and Cuffe Parade, has consistently been receiving poor quality water.Ashwin Nagpal, a resident of Moti Mahal, last week collected a sample of water supplied to his home, boiled it and sent to a private lab in Churchgate for testing. The lab released its report on Monday stating that the water sample contains bacteria not fit for human consumption. Nagpal said, “MMRC damaged the water pipe line in front of our building, They repaired it in a month and BMC restored our supply. But still many of the residents started falling ill.”An MMRC spokesperson said, “We are examining the cause. Temporarily, alternative supply has been ensured and attempts are on to get the issue resolved with the help of the BMC.” When Nagpal contacted the civic administration, the civic officials told him to re-test the water samples through procedure adopted by the BMC.
