Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) to review 10% water cut today, 22 October 2009

Now, Pavana dam has 98 per cent water in its reservoir!

The Pimpri-Chinchwad township with a population of around 15 lakh is entirely dependent on Pavana dam for the drinking water needs. The municipal corporation lifts 340 MLD water from the bund at Ravet on Pavana river for its consumption.

Following a deficient rainfall this monsoon season, the civic body had imposed a 20 per cent water from July 7, when the Pavana dam was left with only 46 per cent water in its reservoir.

However, following good rains in the catchment areas of Pavana dam towards the end of August and beginning of September, the water level in the dam rose to 90 per cent. Following this, the water cut was reduced from 20 per cent to 10 per cent from September 15. Recently, the area again received a good spell of rains towards the end of September and beginning of October, further increasing the level of water int he dam.
