KWA is facing major loss due to recurrent pipe bursts. Transmission loss due to leakage in pipe is another cause of worry. With cases of pipe burst being reported frequently in the city, the Kerala Water Authority (KWA) has decided to replace the old cement pipes between Aruvikkara and Peroorkada. The Rs 38-crore work, which involves replacement of pre-stressed concrete pipes with mild steel ones, will cover around 9km from the KWA pumping stations at Aruvikkara to the city.

The new pipes will be laid parallel to the existing ones. However, the 13-year-old cement pipes will be retained in the stretch in order to serve for emergency purposes, said KWA officials.
