Providing relief to the residents of the city, finally Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation- BMC has announced an increase in the amount of daily water supply.
Builders in Mumbai finally had something to cheer and be joyous as they heard the news that the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC- also known as Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai) is increasing the amount of daily water supply.
BMC has announced an increase from 90 liters per head per day to 135 liters per head per day. The new level of water supply will be effective from October 1, announced BMC.
Up to last year, finding water for construction was the main concern for the builders. They really had to struggle to find sufficient water for housing constructions in the city. As the civic body increased the daily water supply, the builders will be able to find sufficient water for construction purposes.
In experts’ opinion the decision of BMC will be boosting housing industry to greater extents. However they are sure that the increase in daily water supply is not meant for the builders but for the residents.
For a long time, residents of the city had been suffering from acute shortage of water which is a basic necessity. Mr. Paras Gundecha, Maharashtra Chamber of Housing Industry (MCHI) Chief said that this news is a relief to the residents of the city who struggle with water-shortage.
Mr. Gundecha added that though the consumers are aware of the water shortage, they had no option but to complain about the shortage they faced as it is basic.
Last year, though BMC had promised to bring over 200 MLD of water supply to the city, it could not fulfill the promise due to inadequate rain which drained the water level of the Middle Vaitarna Dam.
A senior civic official from the water department revealed that this year adequate water will be collected and supplied in the city in abundance. The official added that BMC has considered changing old and corroded pipelines which cause the loss of lot of water while supplied.
