Water scarcity, do not visit: Message to relatives!


aaron, Apr 25, 2019, 4:59 PM IST

This is a series of real-time reports.  Every summer the local administration provided temporary solution to areas affected by water shortage. But rarely will it give importance to its effective implementation. That is very reason people push from day to day cursing the existence of summers. By publishing literal reports regarding the problems being faced by the people, It is our aim to open the eyes of the local administration, people’s representatives and MLA’s  to provide a permanent solution to the persisting problem. Therefore our team visited the areas worst affected by the lack of water. You can share your problem with us. If there is an extreme lack of water, whatsapp this number 9148594259.

Udupi: They are providing water once in three days in the city. There is no definite time on when the water will come. The situation is so bad that if the water comes, it comes! During such an occasion, one has to send a message to relatives and children to not to visit the house during the vacation.  Not being limited to this, people are failing to participate in functions as well, since they have to remain back at home to successfully collect the erratic arrival of water.

Severe problem at Gundibail

Doddangudde, Hudco colony and Vyayama school areas in Gundibail ward are facing a severe shortage of water since they lie at an elevation. Although the water is being provided once in three days, the pressure of the pumped water is insufficient and the water fails to reach areas of higher elevation. “At least, provide the water at a definite time and there by allow us to be at peace,” is the cry being uttered by women opf every household in Gundibail ward.

Solely dependent on municipal water

There are more than 1,500 houses and more than 30 commercial shops in this ward. All of them are solely dependent on municipal water supply. The problem is not so severe at Karamballi, Santhosh Nagar, Chakrateertha, Nekara colony and other areas coming within Gundibailu limits.

Water at 4am in the morning!

If once the water is provided at 4am in the dawn, the next time the water is being provided during the night. Because of this unpredictability the people are in a shock, they can neither sleep peacefully nor presume the next arrival of water.

Water wasted

If on one side the entire ward is reeling under the lack of water resource, on the other hand, a few houses are using the very same limited resource to wash their vehicles, for their garden and other work. It is being alleged that because of this, the houses existing on elevated locations are facing a major scarcity of water. The people have urged for immediate action in this regard.

Demands of the people from the ward

  • Provision of bore wells to particular areas
  • Silt and rock removal from Baje dam
  • Increase water pressure
  • Provide water once in two days
  • Provision of water through tankers for elevated locations

If money is spent on water, there is none left for food!

“The purchased water has to be judiciously used for cooking, drinking, restroom and for washing clothes. The situation is only worsening by the day in this ward. On one hand the municipal officials are failing to provide us with water on the other hand, if the money earned through day wages is spent on water, how will be survive?” asks Vidya, a local resident

Relatives please do not come home!

“If the problem persists, the anxiety of settling at ones hometown begins to haunt. We have informed out relatives and children to not to come home during the vacation. The water being provided by the municipality is not enough for the four of us at home. If relatives come, then we will have to get tanker water daily,” says Veena, Doddangudde

Not going to programmes

“Since the water pressure is low, it will take hours together to fill water. Therefore it is impossible to go to any functions occurring at homes of relatives,” informs Shalini, Doddangudde 1st Cross
