KARACHI: The water supply from Hub River was suspended on Tuesday after a breach occurred in the Hub Canal, which carries water from the dam to the city. Heavy machinery with technical staff has been sent to the spot and the breach will be plugged within 36 hours, said Karachi Water and Sewerage Board managing director Misbahuddin Farid. “We will supply water through an alternative canal,” he said, adding that a few areas in District West may face a water scarcity.
