Maharashtra: Good rainfall fills up seven lakes but not as much as last year

The seven lakes that supply all of Mumbai’s water — 3,750 million litre a day against the actual demand of 4,200 million litre — have seen a rise in water levels after a good spell of rainfall in their catchment areas over the past week. But it is still around 6 per cent less than what they had last year.
Two of the lakes — Modak Sagar and Tulsi — have surpassed the halfway mark, holding 56 per cent and 51 per cent of their total capacities respectively.
