WATER SCARCITY/SHORTAGE REPORTED


With bountiful rains this season, Bangalore is already beginning to experience the water scarcity in some parts and soon will engulf major portion as the 1000`s of borewells drilled every month, the underground water table has depleted to the new lows.

The water tanker price has also gone up from Rs.300/- a month ago to Rs.400/- now and expected to reach Rs.1,000/- soon.

The water scarcity may be acute by mid may and if the rain fails/scanty this year, then the situation might be grimmer.
