    During this summer, the use of water tankers in Hyderabad has been increasing steadily over the past four months. The Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply & Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) has made 1.41 lakh trips to deliver water to paid consumers since the beginning of May.

    Officials from the Hyderabad Water Board have noted a significant increase in the demand for water tankers this summer compared to last year. Since February, there have been around 77,220 bookings for water tankers this year, compared to 56,144 bookings last year.

    In March, approximately 1.70 lakh tanker trips were made, and this number rose to 2.38 lakh trips in April for consumers in Greater Hyderabad and its periphery. From May 1 to 17, the Water Board made 1.41 lakh trips by water tankers, with most bookings coming from western parts of the city.

    The Hyderabad Water Board has been able to improve their delivery time for tankers to consumers within 24 hours due to an increased fleet of tankers and additional filling stations. The demand for tankers started earlier this year in February due to depleting groundwater levels.

    Most localities within GHMC limits rely on groundwater, prompting measures to ensure an adequate water supply within GHMC limits in response to the increased demand.
