Some inner areas of Sanjaynagar do not get water for a whole week. In the west, the irregular water supply has forced the residents to depend on water tankers. Areas of Bangalore north, east and parts of west, which are dependent on Tippagondanahalli reservoir, are facing this severe water crisis. Reason: BWSSB has reduced pumping of water from TG Halli as water level has come down drastically.BWSSB normally pumps around 130 to 140 MLD of water. Since the reservoir's catchment at Arkavathy has not received adequate water during last monsoon, it is drying up.Now, pumping is just 50 MLD, Venkataraju, BWSSB chief engineer, maintenance, said."
