Pune: Residents of Baner-Balewadi are facing an acute water shortage, which has forced them to depend on water tankers to meet their daily needs. Even after repeated complaints to the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC), the situation has not improved. However, PMC is currently working on a solution to the problem with the 24 by 7 water supply scheme. The scheme aims to ensure the smooth supply of water to different parts of the city.

To achieve this goal, PMC is constructing a separate pipeline from Warje Pumping Station to an overhead tank in Pashan. This pipeline will supply water to Baner-Balewadi. However, residents are uncertain about which areas will receive water from this pipeline.

“We are facing the water crisis for long, and to meet the daily water needs, we have to be dependent on water tankers. Although PMC is making these water lines, it is not clear which areas will receive water,” said resident Kiran Madamwar of Balewadi.

Another resident, KN Pitambaram said, “The water crisis problem started a few months back. Now due to inadequate water supply by PMC we have to buy water tankers to meet the daily requirements. We have complained about this to PMC many times but the situation continues. Whereas about the new water supply line, it is yet unclear by when the work will complete and from when the situation will be normal.”

Former Corporator Amol Balwadkar said, “The efforts are being made by PMC to work on the water supply line, and the work of managing pressure and supply is underway. This water line will significantly solve the water crisis of Baner-Balewadi residents. The water supply line will discharge water into the overhead water tank in Pashan.”

According to Anirudha Paswaskar, head of the Water supply department at PMC, “This water line comes under the 24 by 7 water supply scheme, where a separate water supply line is being constructed from Warje Pumping station to the Pashan overhead tank. This water supply line work will complete in the next one and a half months, which will ensure smooth water supply to Baner-Balewadi.”
