‘Water scarcity in Hyderabad due to inefficiencies’
By Thehindu 14-Jul-2019
Addressing a media conference here on Saturday, she said that the city, even before Godavari and Krishna Phase III had been initiated, had surplus water. According to Government of India (GoI), the benchmark for water supply for cities was 135 litres per capita per day (LPCD) but Hyderabad supplied 162 LPCD.
Citing the benchmarks set by GoI, she said Hyderabad was quite short on these. Coverage of pipelines was only 70% as against 100%, metering of water was only 20%. Transmission and distribution losses should be 20%, but it was 40% in the city and 60% in municipalities in metropolitan area. Ms. Karuna said that internal inefficiencies and bad governance were responsible for the sorry state of affairs and the TRS government should pay its attention first to fix the issues. The government should ensure that the mandated 300,000 rainwater harvesting pits be built and cooperate with Jal Shakti Ministry that was planning water conservation programmes.
