For those of you facing acute shortage of water in the city, grudge your waterman who is wasting water. A survey recently conducted by the in a survey conducted by the Centre for Science and Environment ( CSE) in 71 cities across India. The survey states that nearly 40% of water is lost in transmission and distribution. Well if you are under the scarce area then it is time to check for the lapses for the scarcity. The second volume of the seventh 'State of India's Environment report - Excreta Matters' was launched here on Thursday.
The Infrastructure Panel of Confederation of Indian Industry, Karnataka State Council experts say that water availability will see a sharp dip by 70 litres a day per person. In different parts of the city like; Electronic City, RT Nagar, Sarjapur and many such areas have live examples of water scarcity.
The worst affected are the residents of East part of the city. They get the least quantity of Cauvery water when compared to other older areas. Due to te cute shartage of water in these areas even rentals have come down and occupancy ration has come down drastically say residents. Buying water is the only alternative for them and the prices are sky rocketing per tanker which adds the burden.
However BWSSB officials admitted that Bangalore's water supply was unequal. “While the supply is the least in eastern parts of Bangalore, the southern parts are relatively unaffected. This is because these parts are located at the entry point for Cauvery water into the city,” said Engineer-in-Chief T. Venkataraju. The main reason ascertained to the inequality is the bursting population in the city.If more are to walk in for a lucrative future, the city is going to turn a desert say sources.
