Possible Water Crisis This Summer in India

Possible Water Crisis This Summer in India

India's main reservoirs are currently at their lowest levels in five years for the month of March. This data indicates a potential shortage of drinking water and electricity this summer.

Major cities, including Bengaluru, are already facing water supply cuts. These reservoirs are crucial for providing water for drinking, irrigation, and hydropower generation. Last week, these reservoirs were only at 40% capacity, with some states like Karnataka facing even more critical situations.

The water scarcity is due to below-average rainfall last monsoon season. Experts warn that if the situation worsens, there could be water wars between states. The government is closely monitoring the situation and prioritizing drinking water over power generation if needed.
