MCC begins water rationing today

Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) will begin water rationing in order to tide over a harsh summer from today.

According to a press release issued by the MCC, from April 12 onwards water will be supplied to all wards for next 96 hours (from April 12 to April 15) as under the present system (one hour of water supply).

The supply of water will be discontinued for next 48 hours (from April 16 and 17).

The press release stated that the MCC was forced to implement water rationing as there was no inflow to the water sources in February this year. The level of water impounded at Thumbe vented day on Wednesday stood at a precarious 5.80 metres.

The situation would return to normalcy if there are rains in the catchment areas. The MCC has appealed public not to waste the treated water on cleaning vehicles or watering their plants.
