Due to little rainfall, Mumbai’s water supply will be reduced by 10% from July 1. The delayed monsoon rains had little effect on reservoir water levels.

According to the Times of India, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) accepted the water reduction on the proposal of the hydraulic department.
The City and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) is instituting a 15% water reduction. However, if the situation worsens, the CIDCO stated that the cut might increase to 25%.

The water level in the seven lakes that supply water to Mumbai was 6.97% of the total 14 lakh million litres of water necessary to satisfy the city’s demand for the year as of Tuesday morning.
Bhatsa provides the highest proportion of drinkable water (48%), followed by upper Vaitarna (16%), Middle Vaitarna (12%), Modak Sagar (11%), Tansa (10%), and Tulsi and Vihar lakes (2%).
