Mumbai: BMC to immediately curb water supply by 10%, cut time by 15%

Reduced water levels in reservoirs and lakes has forced Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to impose a 10 per cent cut in water supply to the city immediately. Water supply timings will also be reduced by 15 per cent, and there will also be a dip in pressure. “This is necessary to preserve the city’s water stock till the next monsoon,” says civic commissioner Ajoy Mehta. The cut applies to residential as well as industrial use, and extends to Thane and Bhiwandi civic bodies.
