Surat: Water supply cut by 10 minutes

  • 11th October 2018, Surat - To cope up with the increasing shortage of water supply in tier 2 cities, SMC has started curtailing watersupply for 10 minutes in a day in the city. This helps it to save 10 MLD of water daily. Surat city gets 1,200 million litres per day (MLD) for citizens. The supply of these households comes from Ukai dam built upon Tapi River. For the facts the dam is not filled even half until now due to insufficient monsoon rains.

    SMC has urged the citizens to take measures in order to save water. The more they save the better it is in the near future. SMC is worried about wastage of water because diwali is round the corner and people will use a lot of water to clean there households.
