There are farmers and villagers who are pleading for safe and good drinking water in villages. While the average water levels in the district were pegged at 40 per cent, water levels in dams supplying water to the city municipal corporation had better stock – though not at par with water levels at this time last year.“The entire district had 26.146 thousand million cubic feet (TMC) of water in store, which is 40 per cent of 65.814 TMC capacity of the 23 storage structures put together. Nashik: Major and minor dams in the district are now left with water at only 40 per cent capacity in storages across 23 structures.
