The standing committee of the Pune Municipal Corporation on Monday discussed the water supply issue where the elected representatives demanded civic body restore twice-a-day water supply in the city. However,civic officials turned down the demand reiterating that the present water stock in the dams was not enough to restore twice-a-day supply.
The officials said the irrigation department had asked PMC to treat sewage water for irrigation and only then should it demand additional water supply. The city first witnessed 20 % cut in supply,which was reduced to 10 per cent in August after dams supplying water to the city refilled with rainwater. The city draws over 14 TMC of water from the Panshet,Khadakwasla,Temghar and Varasgaon dams.
