Mumbai may face water cuts this year

After a good start to the monsoon, which lead to five of seven lakes overflowing in mid-July itself, water in reservoirs are currently eight per cent lower than the average water level expected. The lower-than-expected level could lead to the municipal corporation imposing water supply cuts across the city this summer. The water level is at 92 per cent as compared to ‘full to the brim’ level like previous years.
