Pune: Residents in the Poornima apartments have to deal with water crisis every summer season. This has been the scenario for the last 10 years.
Poornima Apartments is a part of Pushpak Park society which is located at ITI road in Aundh and has 30 individual buildings and bungalows. Here, the PMC water supplied comes with low pressure.
“We have been sourcing water through tankers. Not a single drop is from the PMC water supply. I have raised many complaints but has yielded no result. Other buildings in Pushpak Park get only low-pressure water and they are using borewell water,” said Nikhil Kalantre, a resident of Poornima apartments.

“Our society is located on the dead-end of the park.
It is a small building with only 12 people but still we are getting adequate water from the PMC. We have to depend on tankers,” he said.
Other buildings which are also facing water crisis are Galdiola Building (Lane 4), Zeus Apartment – (Lane 1), Raj Apartments (Lane 5) and Shreedhar Building (Lane 4).
Sudnya Athale, a resident of Raj Apartments said, “We have been dealing with this problem for many months. I don’t understand the logic as few buildings in our park are getting adequate water supply. We utilise borewell water as much as we can but I urge PMC to find a solution at the earliest.”
“Low-pressure water supply is a problem in that area. We have decided to give them a connection from another pipeline,” said Aniruddha Pawaskar, PMC water department head.
She also said that the work is expected to be in the next couple of days.
