Pune: Citizens of Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad, two cities that were experiencing a water crisis till a month ago, can finally have a sigh of relief for the next few months as most of the dams that supply water to these areas are more than 80% full.

As per information, Pimpri Chinchwad receives most of its water supply from the Pavana dam, which is now 82.04 per cent full. Also, the Khadakwasla dam is more than 90% full, the Warasgaon dam is more than 87% full, the Panshet dam is more than 96% full and the Temghar dam is nearly 70% full with water.

This is a very drastic change from the circumstance a month ago when water levels in dams were low and the possibility of water cuts raised serious concerns among the residents in the city as well as the district. The increase in water levels is a consequence of the good rains that Pune and its surrounding areas, particularly the ghats, received in July. 

Currently, the monsoon has taken a break as August has started on a bit of a dry note with several districts reporting large rainfall deficits.
