Mar 2007-Bangalore faces power, water outages

Bangalore faces power, water outages: "
The water supply across Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is also expected to take a hit due to the power shortage. Currently, water demand in the city stood at around 1,200 liters per day but Bangalore Water Supply and Sewage Board (BWSSB) has managed to supply only 900 MLD, primarily pumping from the Cauvery river.According to official sources, BWSSB could not avail the required power to supply adequate water to the city even after paying huge amount as electric charges. If the power shortage widens in summer, it is understood that the BWSSB might reduce the frequency of water supply from alternative days currently to once in three days, Board sources said.
