By Indiatoday 18-Jun-2019
As Tamil Nadu continues to face acute water shortage, the state government will now set up a monitoring committee to look into the water supply related issue. Municipal Administration and Rural Development Minister S P Velumani said he had chaired a review meeting along with senior government officials to study the steps need to address the water crisis in the state.
Velumani said he has directed officials to form a monitoring committee led by a senior officer who will visit every street in each zone and ensure water supply.
Tamil Nadu is reeling under acute water crisis for the past several months after Chennai's Porur Lake, which is considered one of the main sources of water, has reached its lowest level.
Here are the latest updates of the Tamil Nadu water crisis:
1. The Tamil Nadu government said it was supplying an additional 2,400 Million Litres Daily (MLD) drinking water, which was more than the amount supplied in previous years. Velumani said Chennai was facing a serious drought condition due to 62 per cent lesser rains compared to 2017 and added as against 450 MLD of water supplied during that period, the government was now supplying 520 MLD.
