    In many parts of Hyderabad, residents are facing water shortages, with some areas only receiving water once every four days. There is a significant concern about the wastage of drinking water through leaky pipelines and tankers. Despite complaints to the Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWSSB), the issue has not been resolved.

    Leakages in tankers are causing around 50 to 100 liters of water to be wasted every day, especially in the Western part of the city. Due to poor maintenance, there are also leaks in the drinking water pipelines, leading to more water wastage. This has worsened the water shortage in areas like Tolichowki, Neredmet, Nizampet, Manikonda, Chilkalguda, Tarnaka, and Malkajgiri.

    Residents have been complaining about overflowing drinking water from damaged pipelines, making it difficult for them to travel. Despite multiple complaints to HMWSSB officials, no action has been taken. Some tanker operators are also wasting water by leaving valves open at traffic signals, resulting in less water being supplied to residential areas.

    Many residents have been using the HMWSSB app to report the wastage of drinking water in their areas. The old and rusty pipelines have never been repaired, causing ongoing leaks and low water pressure. HMWSSB officials have reported receiving over 60,000 tanker bookings per month in the past two months, with an average of more than 2,000 bookings per day.
