    In Hyderabad, the Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board stated that there is enough water in the Nagarjunasagar and Srisailam reservoirs to meet the city’s drinking water needs this summer. They assured that there will be no issues with water supply.

    To provide drinking water to residents within the GHMC limits up to ORR, the HMWSSB is transferring 270 MGD of water daily from Nagarjunasagar reservoir and Akkampally balancing reservoir through the Krishna project phases 1, 2, and 3. This amounts to 1.38 tmcft per month.
