Karachi, the largest city in Pakistan, is facing a water shortage due to a pipeline burst. According to officials from the Water Board, the 72-inch diameter pipeline No. 5 burst as a result of a power breakdown at the Dhabiji pumping station, causing flooding in the surrounding areas.
The power breakdown at the Dhabiji Pumping Station has resulted in the suspension of water supply to Karachi. Officials have reported that four pumps have been shut down due to the power breakdown, and repair work has not yet begun due to the high pressure of water.
A spokesperson from the water board has stated that repair work on the pipeline is expected to take 36 hours to complete. As a result of this water shortage, the citizens of Karachi are likely to face difficulties, and authorities are working to find alternative solutions to mitigate the impact of the water crisis.
