What is the usual scenario of Water Level in these water bodies?
Last year, at the same time, all these water bodies collectively were having 5.72% of the total water storage capacity. However, in 2018 the water level of all these water bodies was 13.09% during this time. The main reason for this could be the 10% water cut by BMC at that time.
BMC’s take on this
However, BMC is telling people not to panic during these circumstances. On this, Additional Municipal Commissioner, P Velrasu says,
This year, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted normal rainfall in Mumbai. So far the rainfall in Upper Vaitarna and Middle Vaitarna and some other dams are better than last year. The water levels in these dams are also higher than last year. So there is nothing to worry about the availability of water as of now.
Let’s hope we get good rains quickly and get sufficient stock of water.
