Enough stock in dams, no fresh water cuts likely in city

On the existing 10% water cut, the civic body said it would continue it because the PMC had already used 3.75 TMC of the 11.5 TMC allotted to it, and that the irrigation department had itself asked it to deduct the 3.75 TMC from the overall quota used since June.

"In the present scenario, we would have to continue the existing water cut, unless more water is provided for supply," said Pathak.

With the city lifting about 1,050 MLD every day, the daily consumption is around 1.25 TMC. The Khadakwasla canal committee, which met recently, had instructed the civic body to prepare a revised plan on improving water supply and asked it to lift less water. At present, the annual quota of 11.5 TMC water is approved for the city but the PMC actually lifts about 14.5 to 15 TMC.
