MUMBAI: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Friday announced withdrawal of the 10% water cut for the city as stock in the seven lakes supplying potable water to Mumbai increased to 95.19% of their total storing capacity.
The civic body is expecting further a increase in the water level due to the ongoing rain spell in the catchment areas.
The BMC had implemented 20% water cut in the city from August 5 due to poor rainfall in June-July. But afterwards, the catchment areas received good rainfall in the last four weeks. Recently, the BMC reduced the water cut from 20% to 10%. They withdraw the existing 10% water cut from Saturday.
Two of the seven latkes – Tulsi and Vehar are situated in the city limits, while the remaining five lakes are outside the BMC limits.
