Water tankers, are back in Vasai-Virar region


In Vasai-Virar, residents get water for 15 to 20 minutes a day. A major chunk of water for the region comes from the Surya dam. According to civic sources, there’s water in the Surya dam to last only for the next 15 days.

images Water tankers, which were almost wiped out of the Vasai-Virar region, are back in business with large housing colonies depending on these tankers to meet their daily requirement. "Vasai-Virar almost got rid of water tankers as pipelines reached the interiors. But with the scarcity of water, tankers are in demand again,” said a civic official.

Tankers are charging Rs 800 to Rs 1,200 for 10,000 mld. "We have to wait for two to three days to get a water tanker. Though we get municipal water for half an hour a day, at least one tanker every two days is required to meet our daily requirement,” said a Virar resident Prasad Bangera. Read more TimesofIndia
