Good rainfall in catchment areas that provide water to Mumbai has resulted in ensuing water ranges going as much as 71% on Saturday. Two days in the past, the water stage of the seven lakes that provide consuming water to Mumbai was at 60% of whole capability.
Based on knowledge from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Company (BMC), the seven lakes have 10.37 lakh million litres of water at current, which is 71.72% of their whole capability of 14.47 lakh million litres. The general lake stage for the corresponding interval in 2019 was 93.15 % and 89.42% in 2018. Bhatsa dam, which caters to 55% of the town’s whole water requirement, is at 70.93% of whole capability, in comparison with 91.60% presently in 2019.
BMC provides 3,750 million litres of water day by day in opposition to the town’s demand for 4,200 million litres. Except for Tulsi and Vihar lakes, that are positioned inside Mumbai’s limits, the opposite catchment areas of lakes and dams are in neighbouring Thane and Palghar districts. Tulsi and Vihar lakes have already overflown.
On Sunday, the water stage on the lakes crossed 50%. The degrees have doubled over the previous 20 days. On August 6, the degrees stood at 37%.
BMC has mentioned it’s monitoring lake ranges each day and the 20% water reduce introduced on August 5 might be reviewed by the top of the month. There have been no water cuts in 2019, owing to good rainfall in catchment areas. BMC had imposed a ten% water reduce in 2018, and a 20% reduce in 2016.
