The water level has dropped at Pench and Kanhan river project. Both projects are very important as Nagpur city gets maximum water supply from these reservoirs, but since last few days the situation in the city regarding the low water supply has came to an alarming stage.
Most districts of the state are facing drought and there is a possibility, Nagpur will soon be facing the same problem. Though the city is having continuous water supply, there is only much left to survive next one month. As per the speculations the city will be facing water scarcity after June 10.
Considering the seriousness of the issue, Mayor Nanda Jhichkar had visited the Pench and Kanhan river projects. She has appealed to the citizens to use the water carefully and to avoid the wastage. She also visited Navegaon Khairi project to check the situation of Totladoh project as it one of the main reservoirs of the city.
Mayor, Nanda Jhichkar has instructed Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) officials to take care of the water level in the dams and has also directed the officials to maintain the water supply till June 30. However it will be a critical situation if the monsoon does not arrive on or before June 30.
