The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has water and also treatment capacity at Pench reservoirs from where water can be diverted to Kanhan WTP.
The NMC could have diverted 100 MLD from Pench WTPs to areas under Kanhan WTP.
Nagpur: North, east and some parts of south Nagpur — which cover around 35% of city’s area — are facing water crisis for over a month due to low supply from Kanhan water treatment plant (WTP).
The NMC has never planned diversion of water from Pench WTPs to areas under Kanhan WTP and vice versa.NMC sources told TOI it requires only a water pipeline connecting main water line of Pench WTPs with that of Kanhan WTPs but was never planned.
This caused water shortage in east, north and some parts of south Nagpur which get water supply from Kanhan WTP.Remaining 65% areas — west, south-west, central and majority parts of south Nagpur — get water supply from Pench-I, II, III and IV WTPs.
