Udupi: Issue of water scarcity dominates CMC meeting, opposition disrupts
Udupi: Issue of water scarcity dominates CMC meeting, opposition disrupts.
No one has taken initiative about dredging work in the dam so far.
Replying to him, assistant executive engineer, Ganesh K said, “The water level in Baje dam has gone down to 1.17 metre.
Compared to last year, the water level in the dam is abysmal.
Everyday 15 MLT of water is spent for around 355 apartments in city.
CMC supplies water 12 to 15 hours a day.” Raghavendra, environmental engineer, said, “At present, 3.31 metres of water is available at Baje dam.
It is enough only for next 25 days.
If they keep the same measure, they can manage water supply till June 5.” Yashpal Suvarna and other opposition party councillors were seen disrupting the meeting for small reasons.
The ruling party councillors demanded apology for his abusive words and warned that he should not use such language in coming days and it was an insult to CMC.
Because of this, we have reduced pumping capacity to manage water for next two months.” Many councillors objected to water supply for panchayat area and demanded to connect cut off water supply to find solution for water shortage.
