Madhumitha Viswanath ByExpress News ServiceCHENNAI: With peak summer around the corner, Metro Water is likely to increase water supply to the usual 830 MLD within a month, said highly placed sources.
Though a spike in demand is not felt as of now, officials assure that there is enough storage to maintain increased supply.
As of last weekend, four reservoirs together hold 6.36 tmcft apart from 74 cusecs received from Veeranam lake.
New connections under the board’s purview in areas like Ullagaram, Avadi and Shollinganallur is another reason why the government will crank up the supply soon.
This is the major source that is keeping the reservoirs half full and hence increased supply is very much possible.
