If it doesn’t rain in the next ten days, Mumbaikars may face water cuts. MCGM has said that with dipping lake levels it might have to impose a ten per cent water cut if the water levels are not raised by rainfall. Mumbai receives its daily supply of water from six lakes, Modak Sagar, Tansa, Vihar, Tulsi, Upper Vaitarna and Bhatsa, located on the outskirts and in the city. While the water level of Vihar has reached its lowest, Tansa has water that can be used for the next ten days. MCGM officials informed that if it doesn’t rain by June 15 then they will exhaust Tansa’s water and there would be shortage of 400 mld in the 3450 mld storage. This is why we would have to impose water cuts. More information was given by MCGM Commissioner Dr. Jairaj Pathak. With cameraperson Vinayak Dalvi, Hansraj Kanaujia for NMTV News.
