Even after receiving a good amount of rainfall this year which eventually filled up the dams like Totladoh, Navegaon khairi up to the brim, city will still get 10 mmc less water daily.
The Maharashtra water Resources Regulatory Authority has approved cities water quota and has set 172 mmc water for Nagpur city even after Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) demanded for 182 mmc water.
The new quota has been implemented with immediate effect and will remain in effect till October 31, 2020. With this new implemented water quota Orange city will get 152 mmc water from Totladoh and 20 mmc water from Kanhan river, informed NMC water supply department.
City collector Ravindra Thakre along with MWRRA officials held a meeting where they discussed about the plan.
“We will have to conserve water, and have to think for the future and not only about the next 12 months” said Thakre.
Presently Totladoh dam has 99.22% stock of water with a capacity of 1166.93 mmc, and has 1158.99 mmc water available while Navegaon Khairi has 76.24% of water with a capacity of 180.98 mmc and has 147.25 mmc water left.
NMC has been working in conserving water from last one year so that the water can be stored in the dams for longer time period.
