Chennai lakes half empty as monsoon season ends 2.1.2018
Chennai: The Northeast monsoon, which started with a bang in Tamil Nadu, failed to fill the four major lakes that provide drinking water to Chennai. This could mean possible water shortage in the metropolis later this year. According to the Chennai Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board website, the four lakes - Poondi, Cholavaram, Red Hills and Chembarambakkam - have 4,969 mcft against their combined capacity of 11,257 mcft, as on December 31. Although the Chennai, Kancheepuram and Tiruvallur districts received excess rainfall of 20, 6 and 16 percent respectively, all the rain poured during the first few days of the monsoon season resulting in a major portion of rainwater draining into the sea. A Metrowater official said that the monthly drinking water requirement of the city is 1,000 million cubic feet (mcft). With less than 5,000 mcft water available in the reservoirs and with the supply from Veeranam Lake, we could provide uninterrupted water supply till June, the official added. Metrowater ...
