We are probably going to see a severe water shortage from mid April onwards. The word going around is that this won't be a routine shortage that we are used to over last few years. May get pretty serious. I would be nice to have BWSSB publish a bulletin to dispel such fears, or be transpare about the forecast it is going to make about the shortage so that, if it gets that bad, people can be ready.
We are approaching elections, and being public about an upcoming water crunch may not help the ruling party. But it is in our interest to get to know about the upcoming shortage (if it is for real) and highlight it so that water management (not just distribution) gets the focus and prime placement in the work-in-progress manifestos.
I will request BWSSB MD for a meeting to share his views on water an how BWSSB is getting ready for April-May-June time.
