Mangaluru, May 3: Due to the scorching heat of summer, the inflow of water into Netravati River has stopped, and the water level at Tumbe Dam is declining. As a result, the district administration has decided to ration water in the city corporation limits from May 4 onwards.
After reviewing the pros and cons, the administration has made the following decisions:
Water will be released for Mangaluru south and Surathkal on alternate days.
Water supply for construction activities and service centers washing vehicles will be discontinued until further notice. Water supply will be disconnected without notice if it is found that water is being wasted.
Water will be released to Mangaluru north on May 5 and to Mangaluru south on May 6, and so on, on alternate days.
"As the release of water in this manner is inevitable, people are requested to realize the issue and cooperate with the Mangaluru city corporation," stated a press release from the city corporation's executive engineer.
