Chennai in crisis as authorities blamed for dire water shortage

Chennai in crisis as authorities blamed for dire water shortage

We are also drawing water from aquifers near Neyveli Lignite Corporation.

With no rain in the last 200 days, and none forecast in the immediate future, it is being reported that almost 5,000 employees who work in the city's IT hub on Old Mahabalipuram Road (popularly known as OMR) have been asked to work from home. "A three-bed operation theatre alone requires 6,000 litres of water daily", said Deepal, a gastro surgeon, according to Outlook. News18 reported that a division bench of justices S Manikumar and Subramonium Prasad has directed additional government pleader E. Manoharan to submit a report on measures the E.K. Palaniswami government had taken to ensure city residents get water. "However, it is hard to fetch 10 pots of water as the number of people who are waiting for water is very high", said a K Vijaya, a resident of Anakaputhur.

The Madras high court has criticised the Tamil Nadu government for inadequately addressing the problem of water crisis in the state.

Chennai Metro Water supplies only 525 million litres per day, way less than the 800 million litres required.

People are using the water supplied through tankers for drinking and washing as the ground water levels have gone down and hence the shortage, he said.

The Pels, of course, also own the No. 1 overall pick, which they all but certainly will use on Duke big man Zion Williamson . Williamson's response was a coy: "It feels like being RJ Barrett".

Against a total of 11,257mcft capacity, the four reservoirs supplying water to Chennai have less than 35mcft water left in store.

Indian residents queue with plastic recipients to get drinking water from a distribution tanker in the outskirts of Chennai on May 29, 2019.

As the reservoirs started to run dry, many hotels and restaurants shut down temporarily. "But they are not saying it publicly because they are afraid of backlash from the government which is denying the issue", he adds. He said that due to deficient rain, the groundwater has depleted but claimed the issue was not as big as was being made out, especially in the media. "But we are maintaining supply with the help of other sources, and we will be able to manage the crisis by November", Hariharan said. Politicians rely on the monsoon and when it is late, as it is this year, and when the rainfall is inadequate, as it has been for several years, there are no policies in place to compensate for the shortfall. "All steps are being taken to supply water".

"The only way to make this better is to improve the groundwater level", Nakkeeran, a social activist, said. Palaniswami had met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday to seeking financial assistance for water conservation.

Last week, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagham chief MK Stalin had demanded the resignation of the state's minister of municipal administration because of the severe water crisis. Velumani's failure is behind the drinking water crisis faced by the people in Chennai and other parts of Tamil Nadu. "The people of Tamil Nadu too expect only that", he had said last week.
