City has enough water till mid-July, says BMC

Mumbai: The BMC has announced that there is not much likelihood of water cuts this summer as the lakes have enough water to sustain the city up to July 15. "There is more than adequate fresh water in the lakes and the levels are high, we do not foresee any water shortage or water cuts this summer. We have enough water to easily last the city till July 15," said a civic official. 
    According to the hydraulics department, on April 17, the total stock of water in the six lakes stands at 3,51,070 million litres. The six lakes—Tulsi, Vihar, Tansa, Modak Sagar (or Lower Vaitarna), Upper Vaitarna and Bhatsa—supply Mumbai with about 3,450 mld of water. 
    A civic official said, "We expect the first showers by July first week. If the rains are delayed, we may have to have water cuts but it is very unlikely."
