Tata Memorial outpost in Kharghar hit by water cut

Written By Unknown on Minggu, 24 November 2013 | 22.23

MUMBAI: An acute shortage of water since Tuesday has affected day-to-day activities at the Tata Memorial Hospital research wing in Kharghar.

The 125-bed Advanced Centre for Treatment, Research and Education in Cancer (ACTREC), though primarily a research centre, treats more than 200 patients on a given day.

A hospital administrator said the shortage started with the City and Industrial Development Corporation (Cidco) announcing water cuts for two days from Tuesday to carry out pipeline repairs, but the crisis had lasted far longer.

A Cidco spokesperson said the water cuts had happened throughout Kharghar, but the supply had been restored now.

"We had announced cuts on November 19 and 20," the spokesperson said. "Since Saturday, normal water supply has been started in all sectors, including the Tata centre. We will still check if there is an issue."

Spread over 60 acres, the Kharghar centre has seven buildings. There are separate buildings for patients, staffers and research.

The centre administrator said medical services such as surgeries and outpatient care remained unaffected.

"We managed to carry our surgeries with whatever little water we were provided every day," the official said. "At least eight to 12 surgeries are carried out here, while on certain days bone marrow transplants are also done," the official said.

The administrator said patient care would be hit if the crisis was not resolved soon.

"Our daily requirement is of 4.5lakh litres, but we have instead been getting a supply of a little over 1.8 lakh litres for the past few days, the official said. "We also have 17 overhead tanks, but they have all run out of stock."

Along with 200 patients, an equal number of relatives are accommodated in the Kharghar centre's dormitory. The official said that they had been making use of water from natural water like borewells and ponds for non-medical purposes.

Officials said the crisis had not affected research work much.
