According to sources, billions of litres of water has been saved from being wasted as a result of the untiring efforts by the engineers and staff of the Water Engineering Department.

Amidst the pandemic, a few days ago, the Bhandarwada Reservoir, Golanji Hill Reservoir and Fosberry Reservoir at the Tunnel Shaft in the Shivdi area suffered a major leak. With the outbreak of the coronavirus looming over the country, repairing the leak was a challenge. However, in just two and a half hours, the leak was repaired which saved billions of litres of waters that could have gotten wasted.

Moreover, under the guidance of Velarasu and under the leadership of Deputy Commissioner (Special Engineering) Ajay Rathore, the initiative has been successfully carried out by Assistant Engineer (Water Works) (Emergency Repair Division) Jeevan Patil.

Meanwhile, the lakes supplying water to Mumbai have 4,50,928 million litres of water left. This water supply will be sufficient for the next 117 days i.e. till August 7, 2021. Therefore, even if the monsoon is a little late this season, the citizens will not have to worry about the water supply cut off due to scarcity.

A total of 3,850 million litres of water is supplied to Mumbai daily from two lakes with very low water storage capacity at Vihar and Tulshi in the Bhandup complex area. Meanwhile, the water is supplied from the remaining five lakes at a distance of 150 km from Tansa, Modak Sagar (Lower Vaitarna), Middle Vaitarna, Upper Vaitarna and Bhatsa.

Mumbai needs a total of 14,47,363 million litres of water in seven lakes for a whole year after the end of the monsoon every year.
