Water Crisis - worsening

After many years, Jamnagar Citizens will see a sight long forgotten - water tankers.

Delayed monsoon is draging reserviour levels to new lows and many people in the region will have to rely on water supplied through tankers if the monsoon gets delayed by a week or more. Of 109 / 120 reservoirs in Saurashtra-Kutch have hit rock bottom or are on the verge of it.

Cities like Jamnagar and Bhuj cities will need to look for alternative arrangements like supplying underground water to the residents through tanker services to tide over the situation.

The situation is worst in Jamnagar as only 6.31 per cent of the quantum is left in the 30 dams in Jamnagar. Over 55 villages in the district has already started water supply through tankers. This number is likely to go up, if rains don't come within a week or so.
