Faced with acute water shortage, particularly during the summer months, Bengaluru is struggling hard to cope . If this is the scenario now, how scary will it be in 2031?

This includes 3,920 MLD for domestic potable purposes and 2,745 MLD for non-potable and commercial purposes. The RMP has stressed the need to finalise a perennial source capable of meeting the water demand till 2031 and beyond. "The estimated demand may be reduced in the long term by reducing the Unaccounted For Water (UFW) to 15-20%, implementation of Dual Pipeline System, use of lakes for water sourcing, etc." The document has put forward a set of short, medium and long-term proposals to meet the shortfalls by 2021, 2031 and 2051.
