Parts of Navi Mumbai go dry as BMC begins 20% water cut
| Saturday | 20th April, 2019
WITH THE BMC implementing a 20 per cent cut in water supply in order to ensure that water in the city’s lakes lasts until the monsoon, parts of Navi Mumbai, where water is supplied by CIDCO, are also facing a shortage.
When contacted, CIDCO spokesperson Priya Ratambe conceded that there was a shortfall in water supply but said it has been regulated.
Although areas around Khandeshwar suffer a water cut in April every year, circumstances this summer are more trying, residents claimed.
But this year, water supply dwindled from March, and by the first week of April, we had to call for tankers.
We managed with water supplied by tankers all of last week,” the resident of Khandeshwar said.
