Now, Jaisalmer faces polluted water threat 23.5.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
A few days ago, spill of molasses from a sugar factory in Punjab was disposed off in Beas River, which polluted the water and killed fish, snakes and other animals.  The contaminated water then reached Rajasthan through Indira Gandhi Canal and is expected to reach Jaisalmer via Ganganagar on Tuesday morning. While the administration is on an alert about the matter in Ganganagar and has stopped the water supply but neither the canal department nor the administration in Jaisalmer is aware about this danger. According to experts, water laden with chemicals can be poisonous, which can harm the residents as there is no awareness about the issue in Jaisalmer yet. The water running in the canal has become black, poisonous and is also extracting a foul smell due to thousands of dead cattle flowing with the water. The canal enters Jaisalmer through Nachana and from there, a different canal supplies drinking water to Jodhpur. After that, the canal reaches Mohangarh, from where the water is supplied to the cities ...

Water crisis to worsen in Shimla as level slides 23.5.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Shimla, May 22 The water crisis in the capital city is set to worsen as the supply from Guma and Giri pumping stations on Tuesday dipped to just 29 MLD due to depletion of water sources. The capital city needs 45 MLD of water daily to meet the increasing demands of locals and tourists. Shimla MC officials said the water sources were depleting daily due to the lack of rain and the rising temperatures. The water supply from the Guma scheme decreased to just 12 MLD from 21 MLD on Tuesday. The MC faced a ticklish situation after water samples collected from two tube wells of the Ashwani khud and outlet source of the Sanjauli reservoir tested positive for the presence of E-coli on May 19.
