HYDERABAD: Even after the heavy downpour last week, which marked the onset of monsoon, water woes seem to be far from over for the denizens. Decreased water supply, erratic timings coupled with continuous low pressure have only added to the problem as many localities continue to reel under acute water shortage. In fact in many areas, the problem has only worsened even as water tankers continue to be the only respite for many residents.
Residents of the Krishnanagar area near Jubilee Hills were up in arms and even lodged a complaint with the Water Board last week. B Yashwanth Kumar, a resident of the area, said “At present, we are getting water only on alternate days after 12 in the night. Though officials say they are supplying water for an hour, we get it for only 45 minutes and to top it, the pressure is very low. Since the supply is nowhere near to our daily requirements, we requested the officials to change the water supply timings and increase the pressure but nothing has been done till now.” Kumar also complains it is a nuisance staying awake till late hours of the night waiting for the water supply.
