SEVERE WATER SCARCITY AT BANGALORE


The worst ever monsoon failure and a severe drought has affected the water supply and the depletion of underground water table in and around bangalore will have serious potable water shortage and the civic bodies might not be able to supply the requisite quantity and have begun the rationing system.

The only source of water supply for the apartment complex is to buy from tankers and the prices have skyrocketed this year from Rs.300/- a tanker to Rs.1,500/-.

Some apartment complexes, which have swimming pools might be compelled to remain dry this season.

It is also said that this summer will be very harsh and the supply of water from cauvery river is just a trickle, will make things much worse.  The Government is planning to pump the dead storage across the reservoirs to meet the scarcity.
