No water, power: Our patience is running dry 21.3.2017
Depleting water levels, soaring temperatures and a power crisis: Bengaluru’s troubles are piling up even before the summer is upon us. The government refuses to acknowledge the problem, maintaining that the KRS dam’s 6 tmc ft of water will see us through the season. RWAs however, have prepared for the worst and are actively campaigning for conservation measures like rainwater harvesting and solar-powered appliances. While farmers are in the frontline of the battle against the drought in the state,  Bengalureans are not immune to its effects either as the city’s water sources are drying up with the storage in the Cauvery dams falling steeply.  Although it is not experiencing a water crisis of humungous proportions or a severe power shortage  just yet, people living on its outskirts are already getting a taste of things to come. Several in the east of the city complain their part of town is the first to feel the pinch every time there is a water shortage as it is at the tail- end of the supply line. Says ...
