The lakes levels supplying water to Mumbai are getting lower...with the South West Monsoon getting delayed by the day...

Total Lakes Storage as on 18th June: 

2019:       0.88 lmltrs
2018:       2.15 lmltrs
2017:       2.70.lmltrs

Full Capacity is 14.47 lmltrs...hence today lakes level is at 6% of capacity.
Water supply from Upper Vaitarna is Nil and Bhatsa has 1% supply only available.
City gets .034 lmltrs supply per day...Hence Mumbai has supply of around 30 days (with effective cut).

That is till 20th July 2019.
Now, what is required is the lake s to start filling up as soon as possible so that levels do not deplete.

Mumbai and the lakes got some showers due to the outer band effect from Cyclone Vayu last week...But was not enough to pull up the Monsoon into the city.
Colaba got a total of 127 mms and scruz 165 mms. 
The Seven Lakes supplying water to Mumbai: Upper Vaitarna, Middle Vaitarna, Bhatsa, Modak sagar, Tulsi, Vihar, Tansa.
