 Mumbai has only 42 days of drinking water reserves officials: there will be water when it rains


According to the report, this year, the rainfall in these lake catchments is very small, and even after nearly a month into the monsoon season, the current water storage has not increased correspondingly. According to reports, the local government supplies 3.75 billion liters of water every day, but the actual demand for water in Mumbai is 4.2 billion liters.

However, for this situation, an official of Mumbai Municipal Corporation said there is no need to panic, adding that since a stable monsoon season has been predicted, water will be available when it rains.

Another Municipal Commissioner of the water sector said: this year, the Indian Meteorological Agency (IMD) predicted normal rainfall in Mumbai. So far, rainfall in upper and middle vatana and some other dams is better than last year. The water level of these dams is also higher than last year. So theres nothing to worry about so far.

Asked if it would stop some of the citys water supply, the local municipal company said there had been no decision so far to stop the water supply and hinted that it was unlikely. However, it is reported that Mumbai implemented a 10% water cut-off in November 2018 due to low water storage. So far, however, this years water storage is lower than the same period in 2018.
