Mumbai's water stock at 50% mark, 25% less than last year
| Friday | 19th July, 2019
After showers in the first two weeks of July, the total water stock of all the lakes which supply water to the city has finally crossed the 50% mark.
The rainfall has receded from the last 10 days but the water stock in the seven lakes has gradually increased.
The water stock reached to the 7.35 lakh million litres level which is slightly over 50% of the total storage capacity of the lakes.
Though it is a good thing, it is very unlikely that the civic body will withdraw the water cut.
Around the same time in the last year, the water stock was 10.92 lakh million litres and in July 2017 the water stock was 10.28 lakh million litres which are 75% and 71% of the total storage capacity respectively.
