Residents in Mira-Bhayandar face extreme water supply issues
SHARES

The month of March has already brought troubles for the residents of Mira-Bhayandar as the heat along with several water cuts have made life a bit more difficult on a daily basis. Reports state that the areas in the twin-city have been facing water issues which could add to the worries in peak summer. Furthermore, no solutions have been found by the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) 

Residents have complained that the areas do not receive water for several hours in a day, whereby the shortage is not addressed even when the supply is limited to over two days. The locality has a requirement of more than 225 MLD, but the supply which is being received is less than  180 MLD along with the same being suspended every 15 days by the Thane district. Adding to this, other issues like leakage and theft add to the existing issues.

As per records, the locality is supposed to get a supply of over 211 MLD (125 from MIDC and 86 from STEM), however, what is being received in reality, is way below the mark.

With an aim to address the same, Dhiraj Mishra - Incharge of BJP's media and IT division from the twin-city, took to Twitter, to state, "If water supply from MMRDA & STEM is not resolved soon, Dep.Mayor Hasmukh Gehlot ji warns MBMC and Maharashtra Govt to protest outside his office till issue is not resolved. Total approved 213MLD We get 180 MLD Shortage of 33MLD is our right & we don’t want anything additional."

 

Many local associations, residential groups and societies have requested an audit for the same, so as to find the solution to the problem. However, the local administration has not been receiving any response and is not able to take action for the same.

A meeting was recently held in the presence of Minister Subhash Desai whereby MIDC officials were also present, but had not found a solution or made any commitments. Experts on the matter have stated that if the same is being experienced due to technical issues, then finding an immediate solution would be difficult.
